Hello ZooLex Friend,
We have worked for your enjoyment!
NEW EXHIBIT PRESENTATION
Giant pandas at the Vienna Zoo live in one of the oldest exhibits of the historic part of the baroque zoo menagerie since 2003. Adjustments have made it one of the most successful giant panda exhibits worldwide. In 2013, the third giant panda baby was born at the zoo. Since the animals are a loan from the China Wildlife Conservation Association, all the young return to China as part of a species recovery program.
Here is the German original version:
