In a bid to reintroduce some captive bred Pandas to wild protected areas, the animals are placed in a large natural fenced area and a strict no-contact with humans observed. The keepers, and any visitors, must put on a panda costume so that the animals don’t regard them as ‘carers’. Here is Sky, panda-style, with two of the dedicated staff at Wo Long research institute. I remain unconvinced that they look (or smell!!) sufficiently panda-like to remain undetected….but then I’m not a panda (yet).
