I’m not crying, you’re crying!!

From the National Zoo:

“By the end of August Bei Bei will be another year older! He will receive a panda-friendly frozen cake specially made by the Zoo’s Department of Nutrition Science the morning of Aug. 22. Visit the David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat to celebrate with us.

Now that Bei Bei is turning four years old, he will move to China as stipulated in our breeding agreement.

Transporting an animal thousands of miles takes a considerable amount of time and effort to plan. The process is well underway which includes working with other federal agencies, researching travel logistics, coordinating with colleagues in China, and preparing Bei Bei for the move. We don’t have an exact date for Bei Bei’s move, but it will occur in the coming months. We will share more details as soon as they are finalized, and everyone will have time to visit and celebrate Bei Bei before his departure.”
