1600 Pandas World Tour in Malaysia
1600 Pandas was launched in 2008 by WWF and acclaimed French artist Paulo Grangeon, who crafted 1600 pandas – representing the number of living pandas left in the wild – with recycled materials in the form of paper mache to promote the message of conservation and sustainable development. The pandas have since appeared in more than 100 exhibitions across various countries such as France, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Malaysia was the 1600 Pandas’ third stop in the Asian region. The 1600 pandas appeared in more than 15 iconic landmarks in Malaysia, where the public had face-to-face experience with the paper mache pandas. The tour was held for the first and only time in Malaysia from 21 December 2014 to 25 January 2015.
