The 1600 pandas have just finished their tour in Malaysia. The 1600 pandas are created by an artist Paulo Grangeon who had created these cute pandas by using recycled materials and papier-mache. These scultures of 1600 pandas are created to raise awareness for the conservation of the endangered species.
The 1600 pandas was initially created from recycled materials in 2008 for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and it had since travelled around the world from France, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia. The 1600 sculptures was created to mark the dwindling panda population in the world which is roughly about 1600.
The 1600 pandas tour first started from Dataran Merdeka Kuala Lumpur and went round the Peninsular of Malaysia and finally ended its tour in Publika, Kuala Lumpur. The movement had managed to collect about RM240,000.00 for the conservation of pandas.
The lucky adopters would be able to collect their pandas today from 3pm onwards. The movement to raise awareness on this endangered species does not end here and must be continued for the preservation of these cute pandas.
