888 Pandas Will Invade Vancouver Tomorrow And This Is Why
Have you ever wondered what 888 pandas would look like?
Well, you don't have to wonder anymore. If you live in Metro Vancouver, you have the opportunity to see 888 intricately designed and hand-crafted pandas at Metropolis at Metrotown tomorrow!
The World Wildlife Fund aka WWF Canada has decided to bring their famous 1600 Pandas+ exhibit to BC this month.
The public art display features 888 handcrafted paper mache pandas created by French artist Paulo Grangeon. It has been shown all over the world, recently in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and now it's making an official debut in Vancouver.
This is the first time that the exhibit has come to North America.
The exhibit was initially created to spread awareness about the declining number of living pandas left in the wild in China back in 2008. Now, the population of pandas has increased from 1600 to 1800!
The entire art display has been made from recycled materials. You can find the exhibit at Metropolis at Metrotown from July 10th until August 8th. The exhibit officially opens tomorrow morning at 10 AM.
There will be tons of fun activities including a selfie station and some adorable "panda adoption" programs. If you plan to adopt a panda, you can actually keep it after the exhibit is finished in August.
Admission is completely free, so don't miss out on this awesome event!
