According to the plan, the giant panda "Fu Bao" in South Korea set off from Everland at 9:40 Beijing time on April 3 and embarked on the journey home.

As the first giant panda born in South Korea, "Fu Bao" is loved by the local people and has received cute nicknames such as "Princess Fu". According to Everland, since January 4, 2021, when "Fu Bao" began to meet the public, it has attracted about 5.5 million visitors.

In March 2016, giant pandas "Aibao" (domestic name: Huani) and "Lebao" (domestic name: Yuan Xin) arrived in South Korea, starting a 15-year life in South Korea. On July 20, 2020, they gave birth to their first baby panda "Fu Bao" at Everland in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. Fu Bao will turn 4 years old in July this year. According to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, giant pandas donated by China to foreign countries must return to China before they reach the age of four.

In view of the low survival rate of pandas, it is generally accepted in the international practice to name pandas 100 days after birth, that is, after their growth has reached a stable period.

From September 22 to October 11, 2020, Everland will open a call for names for baby pandas, and there are four candidate names, namely Chaobao, Xingbao, Xingxing and Fubao. In the end, "Fu Bao", which means "the treasure that brings happiness", ranks first, so it is named "Fu Bao". Of the approximately 50,000 voters, about 17,000 chose the name.

In addition to the delicious food, Grandpa Jiang specially prepared a bouquet of rape flowers with special meanings for "Fu Bao".

Every year at this time, Everland will plant rape flowers in the panda pavilion.

"Bao Family"

In the past four years in South Korea, under the care of two breeders, Grandpa Kang (Jiang Zheyuan) and Grandpa Song (Song Yongkuan), "Fubao" has transformed from a fluffy little ball into a lively and cute round roll, which plays carefree in Everland, eats bamboo, rolls on the grass, and brings endless joy to the Korean people with the lovely daily life of the grandfathers. Korean netizens laughed that "Fubao" was spoiled as a "little princess". They even have a combined name - "Bao Family".

In addition to taking care of the material "Fu Bao", the two "grandfathers" also made full preparations for the return of "Fu Bao" in advance. They taught Chinese on their own, took "Fubao" to write Chinese characters and read Chinese picture books, helping her adapt to the Chinese environment in advance.

Now, the four-year appointment is approaching, and the time between "Fu Bao" and the breeder has also entered the countdown. On the last day of the public meeting in South Korea, the two "grandfathers" who said that they would not cry cried into tears.

In the article "Preparing to Say Goodbye to Fubao", Grandpa Song is full of concern and blessings for "Fubao": "Separation is not always easy. But during my time as a keeper, I learned a lot from wild animals how to deal with parting. Maybe we should learn from Aibao, she made Fubao independent. Grandpa Jiang said that the happiness of animals is different from the happiness of people, and "Fubao" is about to mature sexually, and there is no male giant panda suitable for breeding in South Korea. Therefore, it was the right choice to let "Fu Bao" return to China to meet other friends. It is reported that Grandpa Jiang will take a chartered flight together to escort "Fu Bao" back to China and then back to South Korea.
