     I just want to say a few words first in English to thank the "father" of these pandas. Paulo (Mr Paulo Grangeon, French artist), thank you very much for bringing these 1 600 pandas to Hong Kong. Each of them is very cute and more importantly brings with it a key message íV the importance of wildlife conservation. The pandas have created so much fun and laughter in this city. They vividly show when creativity meets conservation, the result can be truly amazing. So thank you again, Paulo.
