Manx panda moves to England for breeding programme

Mon, 26 Sep 2022

An endangered panda born on the Island has been successfully moved to an English zoo as part of an international breeding programme.

Two-year-old red panda, Aria, has taken up home at the Birmingham Conservation Park after being safely transported by her keepers this week.

Aria was the first cub born to dad Kush and mum Sara at the Curraghs Wildlife Park in 2020.

In recent years the Park has raised more than £6,200 for the Red Panda Network, which helps protect red pandas in Nepal.
