Tai Shan's last day at the National Zoo is February 4th.

By Kate Sheehy

Tai Shan, the National Zoo's beloved panda is leaving February 4th, but before he goes the zoo is inviting his admiring public to help give him a fond farewell.

It's Tai Shan's last week at the zoo before he heads off to China. A farewell party is set for Saturday, where zoo staff will be answering questions about conservation, reproduction and general care for Giant Pandas.

Children will be able to make cards for Tai Shan, and pictures of his time at the zoo will be on display. And of course, visitors will be able to buy some panda memorabilia to take home.

The farewell party begins at 11:30, if weather is bad, it will be moved to Sunday instead.
