You can stop lamenting over the fact that you have to wait until January 16 to see Bei Bei and his squad of pandas. The National Zoo announced via Instagram that they will be giving 25 panda-loving Instagrammers the opportunity to see the nation’s beloved panda a month before his public debut.
As a part of the #ZooMeet, you’ll not only get to see Bei Bei, but you will get a behind-the-scenes look at the David M. Rubenstein Panda Habitat and have all of your burning panda questions answered by the zoo’s panda keepers and biologists.
To be selected, you need to create a 15-second video on Instagram about why you should be selected and complete this registration form by December 7. For all the details, check out nationalzoo.si.edu.
And if you need a little inspiration before you make your #ZooMeet video, here are some Bei Bei videos:
One small step for panda…one adorably wobbly moment for all of us—#BeiBei’s first steps! Under the watchful eye of mom Mei Xiang, #BeiBei took his first steps (and got a major cuddle) on Monday, Nov. 9 around 4:50pm. #PandaStory #WeSaveSpecies #Instascience Now that he’s got all four paws under him, Bei Bei will begin to wander around and leave the den on his own to explore the indoor enclosure.
