Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas – A New Book from Ami Vitale
01 / 16 / 2018Return to Blog
The giant panda is everyone’s favorite bamboo-munching bear. Panda Love is a collection of incredible images of these gentle giants. Ami Vitale’s stunning photographs on location in China document the efforts to breed pandas and release them back into the wild. Ami was given unprecedented access to the pandas and her photos give an amazing insight into the bears’ lives in both the sanctuaries and their natural habitat. Fluffy panda cubs tumble out of baskets and play hide-and-seek with their carers, while the adult pandas curiously explore the forest and climb trees. China may be on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador, and Panda Love documents the process of putting the wild back into an icon.
My first ever book, Panda Love, The Secret Lives of Pandas, about these adorable ambassadors, is now available for pre-order. You can place your order at smarturl.it/PandaLove to guarantee your copy of mystery and cuteness today.
