San Diego Zoo Will Borrow Pair of Pandas

May 14, 1987|From a Times Staff Writer

SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Zoo expects to receive a pair of giant pandas on loan from China later this year under an agreement reached this week by a delegation of zoo officials and Chinese authorities.

Zoo officials in San Diego received word of the agreement late Tuesday from their delegation in Hong Kong.

The loan would make the San Diego Zoo the only West Coast zoo exhibiting the endangered pandas. Two were displayed in Los Angeles and San Francisco in 1984, but the only ones currently in the United States are in Washington and New York City.
