It's a Flash Mob of Pandas! Where and When to Catch Them?

What exactly is 1,600 Pandas in Hong Kong? This is an exhibit created by French artist and sculptor Paulo Grangeon upon invitation by the World Wildlife Fund. The exhibit consists of 1,600 paper mache panda bears on a worldwide tour.

The message is one of conservation and for sustainable development that challenge humans and nature. The exhibit has been making the rounds since 2008, featuring over 100 exhibitions in many countries including France, Holland, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Taiwan, and now Hong Kong.

About the 1,600 Pandas

1600 Panda Exhibit

Why 1600 Pandas? That is the estimated number of Pandas in the wild still in existence.

The 1600 paper mache pandas come in six different shapes and sizes.

Specially for the Hong Kong exhibition, Mr Grangeon has created four special one-of-a-kind pandas, papa bear, mama bear, and two baby bears which will serve as Hong Kong ambassadors for the most popular family-friendly attractions and will be kicking off the "My Time for Summer Fun!" season.

The Hong Kong exhibition is possible thanks to PMQ, the newly created non-profit project that has been established to support design entrepreneurship and nurture Hong Kong young creative talent pool.

When and Where to See the 1600 Pandas?

The main exhibition is at the PMQ Headquarters in Central and will take place from June 25 to July 17, 2014. And prior to the exhibition, a series of flash mobs at Hong Kong's top attractions have been planned.
