1,600 Pandas to Invade Bangkok this March

As many as 1,600 panda figurines will be taking over Bangkok next month as part of a campaign to raise awareness towards panda conservation efforts. Created by French artist Paulo Grangeon and WWF, the pandas, made of recycled papier-mâché and eco-friendly paint, have made their rounds to some 100 locations around the world, including France, Italy, Germany, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. In the Thai capital this year, the pandas will grace 10 landmarks beginning March 4, such as  Sanam Luang, Chong Nonsi Skywalk, BACC, Lumpini Park, and various other spots before settling at Central Embassy for a main exhibition from March 24 to April 10. The event will also include souvenir sales, workshops, and a panda adoption program, with all proceeds being donated to WWF’s conservation projects in Thailand.
