Drones Used to Search for Missing Red Panda from Virginia Zoo


     The search continues for Sunny, the Virginia Zoo’s missing Red panda. The Zoo started Friday morning with drone observation of an area of interest behind the Zoo’s Asian animal exhibits. The drone footage is under review.
     The search for Sunny has continued internally with ZooCrew volunteers and staff who will build surveillance into their daily activities. The Virginia Zoo will not be organizing additional public search parties at this time, but encourages members of the community to look within their neighborhoods and backyards, checking their own garages and sheds, under porches and in the eves of any outbuildings. 

     The Zoo asks that any sightings of Sunny be sent to the Virginia Zoo Hotline, by calling 757-777-8799. If not immediately answered please leave a detailed message - your name, location and animal description. In addition, please text photos of the animal you are observing to the Hotline. Do not try to touch, feed or capture Sunny but do try to keep her in your sight at all times if possible.
