Aug 17, 2017

FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), is celebrating the birth of a panda cub five years after transporting parents Huan Huan and Yuan Zi from China to their new home at ZooParc de Beauval, France.

“When FedEx Express flew Huan Huan and Yuan Zi from China to France five years ago, the pandas captured the interest of so many people. We’re excited by this news and happy that the relocation of the pandas has resulted in the successful breeding of this vulnerable species here in France,” said Julien Ducoup, managing director of the FedEx Express Paris-CDG hub.

Pandas are threatened by a low birth rate and the destruction of their natural habitat in China. The hosting of a potentially reproductive pair at ZooParc de Beauval is part of an international research and conservation program.
