108 people dressed in panda outfits represented the real-life equivalents who live in the Chengdu Panda Base,
a giant panda research centre in Southwest China's Sichuan province.
Zhang Zhihe, head of the Chengdu Panda Base, said: "Our ultimate goal is to help the pandas return to their natural
habitat and to increase the number of giant pandas living in the wild.
We hope that Panda Awareness Week can help us gain more support for
panda conservation and find new advocates for this very special cause."
Let's hope these pandas kept clear of Camden Town or Great Portland Street Tube stations as they might found themselves herded into London Zoo.
