Thank You to Our Members

The Smithsonian's National Zoo is temporarily closed beginning on Monday, Nov. 23 as a public health precaution due to COVID-19. During this closure, we at FONZ will keep you informed of all the developments here at the Zoo—including regular updates on our newly named giant panda cub, Xiao Qi Ji, and an opportunity to be among the first to see him when we reopen. In the meantime, head to the Giant Panda Cam to say hello. Thank you again for your patience and sustained support.
