The panda couple Hua Bao and Jin Baobao arrives in Finland, via Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, on Thursday 18 January 2018. The CEO of Ähtäri Zoo, Kari Vainio, is proud and happy about this historical event. This is one of the biggest ways in which Finland has been involved in international nature conservation work. The media are welcome to greet the pandas. Members of the press will be told the exact time and place later.

The public is welcome to come and see how the panda couple lives in the recently completed panda house at Ähtäri Zoo from Saturday 17 February 2018 onwards. Entry ticket sales have already started, and they are available at www.ahtarizoo.fi and www.lippu.fi.

The pandas are currently in quarantine in China, and the arrival in Finland will be carried out in accordance with the animals’ wellbeing.
