29 October 2012, Singapore – The Giant Panda Forest will open on from 29 November 2012.    It will open ahead of the River Safari’s opening in first quarter of 2013.   Located between the Night Safari and the Singapore Zoo, the special preview of the pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai will also include other Chinese inhabitants of the park such as the golden pheasant and the red pandas.

The Giant Panda Forest is 1,500 square-metres big and is the largest of its kind in South East Asia.   It simulates the natural habitat of the bears with lush live plants, boulders and water features.  The temperature is also kept between 18 to 22 degrees Celsius and at a 50 to 60 per cent humidity level.

Jia Jia and Kai Kai arrived in Singapore on 6 September as part of the joint collaboration between China Wildlife Conservation Association and Wildlife Reserves Singapore to raise public awareness on wildlife conservation and develop a breeding programme for the endangered animals.  Read about it here.
