Smithsonian—National Zoo, Giant Pandas

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute is a leader in giant panda conservation. Since 1972, the Zoo’s animal care staff and scientists have studied giant panda biology, behavior, breeding, reproduction and disease.

The David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat is home to four giant pandas: Tian Tian (adult male), Mei Xiang (adult female), Bao Bao (juvenile female), and a male cub named Bei Bei.
