Goodbye Nam Pang

Fri 10th June

Nam Pang the Red Panda

It comes with great sadness that Paradise Wildlife Park must announce the passing of our much loved Nam Pang the Red Panda. Nam Pang has been part of the Paradise family since arriving from Highland Wildlife Park in 2018 and has always been an iconic animal here at the Park. Visitors and keepers have always loved watching Nam Pang in his habitat which he shared with Tilly our female Red Panda and was often noticed to be trying to take her favourite spot to enjoy the sunshine.


Nam Pang was always a very adventurous climber and was often seen by keepers and visitors climbing to the very top of the hornbeam tree in the Red Panda habitat to find his favourite spot to nap. In the Meet the Red Panda experiences and our Red Panda talks everyone would always notice that Nam Pang’s favourite food was always bamboo which he could eat all day but as a treat he would always come down from the tops of the tree for the occasional fresh tasty grape which he loved.


The team at Paradise is incredibly saddened by this passing, whilst investigations are taking place to understand further the cause of his passing, we will continue to remember him as the amazing tree climbing, grape loving Red Panda he always was. Nam Pang was immensely loved by his keeping team as well as the wider team across the park and he will be greatly missed by everyone who cared for him and by all who were lucky enough to meet him. Everyone who got to meet Nam Pang fell in love with him and his unique characteristics. Nam Pang will remain in the hearts of all the team and guests of the Park.
