Panda-monium on the Tube

Over 100 pandas – or sympathisers dressed as pandas – took to the London Underground on their way to a rally, startling passengers.

The panda patrol was part of Panda Awareness Week. A panda posse performed a graceful tai-chi dance in Trafalgar Square before greeting passers by. Panda Awareness Week aims to raise interest and support for the protection of one of the world’s most-threatened species.

In total 108 panda look-alikes took to the streets and the Underground in London – the same number of pandas currently living in a special breeding centre in Chengdu, China. Wild life experts say only 1,800 pandas are left in the wild.
