Visit red pandas during the peak of their mating season

Because of their striking appearance, red pandas Qin, a male, and Mei Lin, a female, are hard to miss. Visitors to the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Prospect Park Zoo can see their vibrant red coats and pale white faces on the zoo’s Discovery Trail.

Both pandas spend their time climbing trees and exploring their surroundings. Now through March, “[V]isitors can see Qin and Mei Lin playfully court each other as their mating season is at its peak,” says WCS Prospect Park Zoo’s Facilities Director Denise McClean.

The Prospect Park Zoo is located at 450 Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Park. For more, call 718-399-7339 or visit
