Netherlands: Giant Pandas at the Ouwehands Dierenpark

On Saturday I got two postcards: one from the Netherlands and one from France.

The card from the Netherlands shows the Giant Pandas at the Ouwehands Dierenpark. The Ouwehands Dierenpark is a zoo in Rhenen. It opened in 1932. By the end of the 1990s the zoo was practically bankrupt, but after a change of ownership in 2000 the zoo was modernised. The new owner also started attempts to get Giant Pandas for the zoo. On 12th April 2017 two Giant Pandas, Wu Wen (female) and Xing Ya (male), arrived at the zoo as loan from China. Since 30th May they can be visited by the public.

With matching stamps:
Personalied stamps "Giant Pandas"

Thank You very much Mike!
