Pandas Get WiFi

from the beating-the-rest-of-us dept

While various cities (and countries) are debating how to best provide wide area wireless access, it looks like pandas in China have no such issue. The Wolong Nature Reserve in the Sichuan Province, which apparently is home to 20% of the world’s giant pandas has a WiFi network and cameras set up to observe the pandas while making it easier for researchers to share data with each other across the reserve. Now, we just need to get the pandas to learn to communicate, like Koko, the Gorilla, and sign them up for email accounts. I imagine they’d be blogging in no time.
