Panda Yaya and Lele are 2 giant pandas serving Memphis Zoo for 20 years.
It has been brought to our attention that they might be mistreated and in distress.
The Mistreatments Observed Are:
Excessive Caging Time (10+hours)
Distressed Mental Health
Skin Mite Disease
Yaya is 20 years old. As a senior panda, she has gone through several miscarriages, suffers from skin mite and is extremely skinny. Encagement has caused serious stereotypical behavior.
Panda Voices is created by international panda fans. We were brought together by our love for pandas, and the ongoing mistreatment of pandas Lele and Yaya at Memphis Zoo. We want to use everything in our power to ensure the best care and proper treatments are given to Yaya, Lele and pandas globally.
Once facing extinction, pandas are one of the oldest and most miraculous surviving creatures on earth; therefore, the treatments they need is very delicate. Aside from the current rescue of Yaya and Lele, we continue to monitor conditions of caged pandas in the world.
