Have you been bamboo-zled by London’s new panda population?

Posted at 12:30 pm, July 5, 2012 in Fun London, News

If you were passing through Trafalgar Square yesterday, you may well have spotted a black and white sea of 108 pandas doing a slightly soggy flashmob tai chi. No, these monochrome jokers weren’t doing a sun dance, they were out in full force for Panda Awareness Week, attempting to raise awareness of these seriously endangered species and breeding centres like the Chengdu Panda Base in China. The panda fun doesn’t stop there: they also went wild on the tube, will be getting cuddly on the south bank today and are heading over to St Paul’s Cathedral later.

Follow their progress at @ChengduPAW. Did you spot them in action? Tweet us your pictures at @TimeOutLondon.

Just incase you’ve forgotten just how cute real life pandas are and why we should save them, watch below. All together now, awwwww…
