Zoo Atlanta’s Panda Twins

Since their surprise arrival on July 15, the panda cubs have entranced millions worldwide via the zoo’s PandaCam and were scheduled to go on exhibit in late fall. Mei Lun and Mei Huan are, of course, absurdly cute, but a visit to see them will provide an ideal moment to teach the values of preservation and conservation. Since panda couple Lun Lun and Yang Yang came to Atlanta in 1999, they have produced five offspring, a hallmark for a species with only 1,600 representatives in the wild.
