The paper panda-pocalypse has finally arrived in Hong Kong! 1,600 paper pandas checked in at Hong Kong Airport after taking a charter flight and enjoying their in-flight bamboo meals, as shown in this promotional video from World Wildlife Fund Hong Kong.
The recycled paper-made pandas have been winning the hearts of fans in Europe and Taiwan. They will be displayed in six locations in the city during their “tour” in Hong Kong in the following weeks.
Lovely though the pandas are, French artist Paulo Grangeon would rather citizens focus more on the serious conservation message instead of just snapping pictures of their cuteness.
Fans can “adopt” the pandas via registration starting from late June by paying a fee between HK$200 and HK$450 to raise money for WWF Hong Kong.
