The first Panda Awareness Week in history introduced the citizens of London to an impressive procession of 108 people dressed up as these black and white animals.
As part of the program, the panda bear wannabes performed tai-chi (i.e. a type of Chinese martial arts) in Trafalgar Square and then danced environmental worries away at a party in Convent Garden.
Apparently, the main drive behind this project is to help promote the Chengdu Panda Base in China, an organization that deals with researching and breeding these endangered animals.
Due to the fact that there are presently only around 1600 panda bears still left in the wild, it seems like a good idea to start looking out for the future of this species.
