Ocean Park has three prized residents, the cute Giant Pandas which are a magnet to visitors and a must-see, specially if you have never seen these rare and endangered creatures before.
The Giant Panda is native to China where it is considered a national treasure. Although their numbers are not well-documented, their total world population is estimated between 1,200 to 2,000 pandas, the majority of them are found in China's Sichuan province.
There are an additional 120 pandas in zoos throughout the world. Seeing one is really a gift, Ocean Park is very fortunate to have four of them.
Here you can admire these beautiful and adorable bears and catch them in action:
... strolling and posing for pics...
...having a snack...
...or just taking a nap...
There are two exhibits, both in the Waterfront (Lowlands).
The first one and most obvious one is the Hong Kong Jockey Club Giant Panda Habitat, which you find next to the Grand Aquarium.
