Known for their cute, cuddly and clumsy behaviour, Zoo Negara’s giant pandas Xing Xing (the father), Liang Liang (the mother) and Sheng Yi (one-year-old panda) today received a donation from their ‘distant cousin’ Pau Pau the Foodpanda.

It is only fitting that food delivery company Foodpanda, whose pink panda Pau Pau is famous nationwide, held the donation ceremony at the Giant Panda Conservation Centre in Zoo Negara, earlier today.

Back at it for the third consecutive year, Foodpanda made a donation again this year to the giant pandas at Zoo Negara. The donation given will be used for the welfare and comfort of these fuzzy creatures.

As part of their heart-warming CSR initiative, Foodpanda has been donating to the giant pandas since 2020. They have also installed pink signages in the zoo to direct visitors to the Giant Panda Conservation Centre.

I am incredibly pleased that we are able to work together once again with
the National Zoo. It all started back in 2020 when we heeded the National Zoo’s call for the public and corporate sector to adopt its animals, following the long closure due to the pandemic.

As we are in the transition to endemicity stage and that zoo visitors are back, we are committed to continue contributing to the giant pandas as they are the personification of the Foodpanda brand with their fun, warm and vibrant personality.

About the giant pandas

Xing Xing and Liang Liang are a Giant Panda couple from China. The pandas are a symbol of 40 years of diplomatic ties between Malaysia and China. Under the Giant Panda International Conservation Cooperation Agreement Programme, they arrived in the country in 2014 and will be here for 10 years before going back to China.

Sheng Yi is actually the couple’s third-born giant panda, born here in Malaysia on May 31, 2021. Before this, the couple already had two cubs named Nuan Nuan (born in August 2015) and Yi Yi (born in January 2018).

Nuan Nuan was already sent back to China in November 2017 while Yi Yi will be leaving in just a few months. Every cub born to the giant panda couple must be sent back to China at a minimum age of 24 months and not beyond four years old.
