The Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM) will start construction of a home for red pandas in Coloane’s Seac Pai Van Park, in Coloane, in the second half of this year so as to be ready when they arrive from China in 2014.
The construction of the habitat for the red pandas will take six months to complete.
