Pandas on the Tube - Panda Awareness Week

If you spotted a bunch of pandas walking around on their hind legs yesterday, it was all in aid of World Panda Awareness Week.  Obviously they had to travel on the London Underground and could be spotted on escalators on the network

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.
