Photo Essays: Journey to the South

Cute and cuddly has arrived.

For the next 10 years, giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia will reside in Singapore, giving locals an up-close and personal experience with these endangered animals. Found exclusively in China, there are less than 1,600 of these black-and-white bears left.

To prepare for their arrival, Wildlife Reserves Singapore built a new $8.6 million enclosure in the upcoming River Safari attraction, and staff have been specially trained to take care of the species. 

The Straits Times photojournalists Kevin Lim, Kua Chee Siong, and Neo Xiaobin were part of a team that covered the pandas' journey extensively, including travelling all the way to Sichuan, China, to document the transition.
