Smithsonian's National Zoo Receives $4.5 Million for Giant Panda Program

David M. Rubenstein donated $4.5 million to the Smithsonian's National Zoo to fund the giant panda program for the next five years. The gift will be used to fund conservation efforts in China, reproductive science, professional training programs, giant panda care at the Zoo, upgrades to the Zoo habitats and public education. In appreciation, the giant panda complex—home to giant pandas Tian Tian (male) and Mei Xiang (female)—will be named the David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat. In addition, young conservation biologists in the U.S. and in China who are awarded National Zoo fellowships for their work to save this endangered species will be named "David M. Rubenstein Fellows."
