Lin Bing: An Adoption Story

When we were in China in November, we  were fortunate to meet a number of people who have adopted pandas through PI.  Among the group were those who had JUST adopted Lin Bing, the beloved panda born in Thailand’s Chiang Mai Zoo.  Lin Bing was returned to China earlier this year to find a mate during the next breeding season who, it is planned, will return to Thailand with her. One of Lin Bing’s adoptors, Nong, arrived on our second day at the base.  Nong fell in love with Lin Bing in Thailand and had not seen her since her departure.  We joined her for the tear-filled reunion and asked her to share her story with us, she graciously agreed.
