SINGAPORE : The search is on for names of the two giant pandas arriving in Singapore in 2011.


Giant pandas

Wildlife Reserves Singapore and CapitaLand have launched a nationwide competition to name the pair.

The pair of male and female pandas will be on loan from the China Wildlife Conservation Association (CWCA) as part of a 10-year joint collaboration.

The aim's to promote the conservation of giant pandas and kick-start a breeding research programme.

So from now till August 31, the public can submit their entries for the two new furry black and white residents and send their suggestions to www.pandas.com.sg.

The names must be symbolic in meaning, reflect the close relationship between Singapore and China, and be easy to pronounce.

Suggested names given for both male and female giant gandas must be in Chinese, with the option of an English, Malay or Tamil translation.

Each entry comes with a participation fee of S$2, which will be donated in full to the Giant Panda Conservation Fund for the pandas' upkeep.

The winning pair of names will be announced in October.

Mr Liew Mun Leong, president and CEO of CapitaLand Group, said, "The giant panda collaborative programme will raise cultural exchange and understanding between Singapore and China, and further strengthen the strong relationship between the two countries.

"It is against this backdrop that CapitaLand, as an active social investor in Singapore and China, is proud to be the presenting sponsor and conservation donor of the programme. This naming contest for the two giant pandas will raise conservation awareness of the Singapore public as we get ready to welcome these Chinese national treasures to Singapore next year."

SINGAPORE : A nationwide contest to name two pandas coming to Singapore from China next year has been extended till 31 December 2010.

The animals will be on loan to Singapore for a 10-year period.

They will arrive next year and can be seen at the Wildlife Reserves Singapore's River Safari attraction when it opens in 2012.

Wildlife Reserves Singapore said the contest was extended to allow more people to submit entries.

Over 1,000 entries have been received since the contest opened in June.

A judging panel, including China's ambassador to Singapore, will decide on their names based on the suggestions received.
