Malaysia to get a Pair of Giant Pandas


Back on June 15th the Malaysian government signed an agreement with the China Wildlife Conservation Association (CWCA), which will pave the way for the loaning of a pair of Giant Pandas to Malaysia.

The agreement was signed by Peninsular Malaysia’s director-general of the Wild Life Protection and National Parks Department (Perhilitan), Abd Rasid Samsudin and the secretary-general of CWCA Zang Chunlin.

The pair of Pandas will be loaned for a period of 10 years, and are expected to arrive within a year of signing the agreement.
