Having been to both the DC Zoo and the Chengdu Panda Center, I am convinced that Tia Shan would have a much better life if he stayed put in DC. Hopefully, he is going to the Woolong Reserve instead, which is far away from the city and deep into the country side. I remember so well how polluted Chengdu was and it was sad to see all those pandas kept there where they'd never see blue skies. I also felt their cages were too small, too concrete--not to mention that any one could pay 1000 RMB and hold a baby panda. It seemed more like a tourist trap than a genuine breeding center.

It only cost 50 RMB to hold a red panda.

ETA: He is going to Woolong. Good.
