      A Very Special Delivery:
      Crown Helps Pandas Reach Their New Home

      HONG KONG —To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR Government, China recently bestowed the gift of two young pandas to Hong Kong, scheduled to be unveiled to the public on July 1, 2007.

      Crown Worldwide (HK) Limited was responsible for transporting these national treasures on April 26 to their new home, Ocean Park Hong Kong, a marine-based theme park located on the southern side of Hong Kong Island.

      Jim Thompson, Crown Worldwide Chairman, expressed his delight, "We are greatly honored to transport the two new ‘superstars’ from Mainland China to their new home in Hong Kong. These adorable pandas will bring joy and happiness to the people of Hong Kong and all who visit Ocean Park for many years to come."

      The giant pandas were born in August 2005 at the China Conservation and Research Centre for Giant Pandas in Wolong, Sichuan. They arrived at their new home on April 26, and the public will get to see them—-as well as AnAn and JiaJia, two giant pandas living at Ocean Park since 1999—-at Ocean Park beginning July 1, the day marking the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong SAR Government.

      For more information on Ocean Park or to make a donation to the Ocean Park Conservation Fund, visit their website at www.oceanpark.com.hk or www.opcf.org.hk.
