Help Us Name Our Giant Panda Cub at the Smithsonian's National Zoo

The giant panda cub born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo on August 23, 2013 has become America's panda sweetheart. And now we need panda supporters from across the globe to help name her! The new cub is part of the successful giant panda partnership between the United States and the People's Republic of China. Her birth is a direct result of our scientists' ongoing dedication to understand the lives, ecology and reproduction of these charismatic bears and ensure a healthy future for them and their mountain habitat.
