Paradise Wildlife Park announces heart-breaking death of ‘immensely loved’ red panda

5

Paradise Wildlife Park has announced that its “immensely loved” red panda has sadly died. Nam Pang was a favourite with all the team, and everyone who met him fell in love with him.

Nam Pang has been part of the Paradise family since arriving from Highland Wildlife Park in 2018. He was always a very adventurous climber and was often seen by keepers and visitors climbing to the very top of the hornbeam tree in the Red Panda habitat to find his favourite spot to nap.

Nam Pang’s favourite food was bamboo, but as a treat he would always come down from the tops of the tree for the occasional fresh tasty grape which he loved. Visitors were able to see Nam Pang up close in the Meet the Red Panda experiences.

“Nam Pang will be greatly missed by everyone who cared for him and by all who were lucky enough to meet him. Everyone who got to meet Nam Pang fell in love with him and his unique characteristics. Nam Pang will remain in the hearts of all the team and guests of the Park.”
