Our world-famous pandas at the San Diego Zoo have had the crowds abuzz ever since two of the black-and-white bears came to visit in 1987. After years of red tape and laborious paperwork, the Zoo and China agreed on a 12-year research loan of two giant pandas, Bai Yun and Shi Shi. A brand-new exhibit area was built for our panda guests, which has since been expanded and renovated and is now called the Giant Panda Research Station.
The world-famous San Diego Zoo also curates and operates Safari Park, also known as a Wildlife or Wild Animal Park. The world renowned outdoor zoo-like attraction where visitors can ride in vehicles provided by the facility to observe free- roaming animals in the wild. Large animals from Sub-Saharan Africa such as giraffes, lions, rhinoceros, elephants, zebras, and antelope live and thrive in as close to their natural habitat as man is able to provide.
