The Calgary Zoo had been importing fresh bamboo from China, but struggled to meet thepandas needs when the coronavirus grounded most flights in March.

卡尔加里动物园一直从中国进口新鲜竹子,但是自从3月份大部分航班受疫情影响停飞以来,就一直面临竹子供应的难题。

The zoo said staff worked with the San Diego Zoo and Suncoast Nursery to arrange weeklyshipments of fresh bamboo, but the process of finding the right bamboo has been expensiveand time-consuming.

11月27日,卡尔加里动物园表示,经过“数月的努力”,终于拿到了国际通行证,“把我们喜爱的大熊猫送回家”。
