You may have thought Wang Wang and Funi were safely accommodated in their luxury headquarters at the Adelaide Zoo, but it seems they may have gone for a walk – quite a long walk.
Flinders University has renamed its only on-campus pedestrian crossing a ‘panda crossing’ after discovering surprising ‘evidence’ of a visit from the celebrity pair.
The University’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Ms Diané Ranck, said Flinders was happy to assist SAFM’s Adam Keily in meeting his on-air challenge to create a panda crossing – as opposed to a zebra crossing – somewhere in Adelaide.
Ms Ranck said she wasn’t surprised to discover that the pandas may have made their way out to Flinders.
“Thousands of school leavers and mature-aged students can’t be wrong,” she said.
“And the fact that we have formed a new School of the Environment to focus on issues such as climate change, water sustainability and biodiversity is just the sort of thing to grab a panda’s attention.”
