Tai Shan
Tai Shan has a New Home
We know that many of you watch the live Panda Cams on and are sure by now that you've noticed that Tai Shan is no longer in his enclosure. Tai has actually been moved to a new enclosure and An An is now in Tai's former enclosure and featured on the Panda Cam.

Tai Shan was moved on 18 September 2012 to a much more peaceful and quiet enclosure where he is essentially separated from the various forms of "tourist interaction" that he has been experiencing. Tai's new, more secluded "retreat" is a much better environment for him and he already seems more relaxed and at home.

Mei Xiang
Pandas Around the World
Our Condolences
Along with many around the world, we were saddened to hear the heartbreaking news that Mei Xiang had lost her cub just a week after we all celebrated her birth. Veterinarians still aren't certain of the cause of death, but initial observations revealed that the newborn had an abnormal liver and worrying fluid buildup in its abdomen. All indications are that Mei Xiang was a perfect mom to the little one.

Erica Vojnich - Stunning Artwork of Tai Shan
Erica Vojnich, a longtime supporter of Pandas International and inspired artist, created "Birthday Wishes," a beautiful portrait of Tai Shan, for an auction celebrating his 3rd Birthday. Reprints of the portrait are available on her website. Says the artist, "It is with great pride that I'm able to sell limited edition prints of this piece with 20% of the proceeds being donated to Pandas International. I'm proud as an artist, to have the opportunity to have those enjoy my work, but to also help this beautiful animal from going into extinction." Thank you, Erica, for your support and for sharing your beautiful artwork with all of us.
