You Can Make a World of Difference

Your gift will ensure that our red pandas will have a happy & healthy home.

Donor Privacy Policy
Roger Williams Park Zoo and the Rhode Island Zoological Society will not sell, trade or share a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor will we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.

When you think of pandas, you probably picture big, black and white animals that roll around and eat bamboo. I bet you’d be surprised to know that there are pandas right here at your favorite zoo…red pandas!

What you also may not know is that the red panda is highly endangered. Their Asian habitat is disappearing at an alarming rate due to deforestation. And some studies say that there are only 2,500 red pandas left in the wild.

By donating today, you can help the Zoo’s efforts to breed Rusty and Sha-Lei, our two red pandas on exhibit, to help save this species from extinction. To be successful, the red pandas must have an exhibit that allows them to climb, play, breed and live in the right temperature. So, we are making changes to their off-exhibit space, including repairs to the HVAC system.

Your gift will ensure that Rusty and Sha-lei will have the home they need to be happy and healthy all year long. And (hopefully) produce a litter of cubs!
