BEIJING: The ceremony to send off the two pandas, Feng Yi and Fu Wa, from Chengdu to Malaysia has been postponed until further notice.
Initially scheduled on Tuesday, the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry sent out a statement yesterday, saying that the event had been postponed “due to unavoidable reasons.”
A new date would be made known later.
The sending-off ceremony was to have taken place at Dujiangyan Disease Control Centre in Chengdu.
The two giant pandas were transferred from the Bifengxia Panda Base in Ya’an to the Dujiangyan, both in Sichuan province, in February.
They have been put in quarantine since arriving at Dujiangyan to prepare for their departure.
