Zoo Atlanta's Pandacam Set to Continue

Giant panda fans, stay tuned, because PandaCam is back! Thanks to a generous gift from EarthCam, fans all over the world can continue to enjoy watching Zoo Atlanta’s giant pandas
Lun Lun (mom), Yang Yang (dad), Mei Lan (sister) and cub Xi Lan on PandaCam.

“We are excited about this great sponsorship from EarthCam and are happy we can continue to offer this feature to our devoted panda audience,” said Marcus E. Margerum, Vice President of Marketing & Sales, Zoo Atlanta.

PandaCam has been a feature on Zoo Atlanta’s website for over a decade and has consistently been one of the site’s top three most visited web pages. The giant panda exhibit is equipped with a $250,000 audiovisual system and a dozen controllable cameras. EarthCam’s international server hosting will allow Zoo Atlanta to continue to send live feeds to the world Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

EarthCam.com is the leading network of live webcams and offers the most comprehensive search engine of webcams from around the world, with more than 200,000 unique visitors daily. EarthCam.com is also the world's favorite webcam network and is recognized as an international authority in the network camera industry. “We look forward to EarthCam technology playing the lead role in webcasting Zoo Atlanta’s PandaCam to its many fans online. PandaCam is an outstanding opportunity to continue to educate and enlighten audiences through
live webcam experiences,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam.

EarthCam is not the only sponsor of Zoo Atlanta’s PandaCam project; a generous gift from Mara Strock of Burke, Va., has taken care of the local server costs to operate PandaCam. “I love giant pandas and missed seeing Xi Lan and family on PandaCam. I am just happy my gift could help bring PandaCam back for everyone,” said Strock.

Zoo Atlanta’s PandaCam will launch live on Friday, March 20, 2009, so stay tuned to see what’s happening with giant pandas Lun Lun (mom), Yang Yang (dad), Mei Lan (sister) and cub Xi Lan.
