1600 PANDAS+ exhibition in South Korea

1600 PANDAS+, an exhibition established in 2008 between WWF-France and artist Paulo Grangeon, refers not only to the increase in the population of wild giant pandas to over 1,800 in the past decade, but also to the increased public awareness of wildlife conservation.

Pandas are seen on May 23, 2015 in Seoul, South Korea. The project now newly renamed as '1600 PANDAS+' is a collaboration which began in 2008 between WWF-France and artist Paulo Grangeon, who handcrafted 1600 pandas, visualizing the number of existing pandas left in the wild with recycled materials to make papier-mache sculptures. The new name '1600 PANDAS+' refers not only to the increase in the population of wild giant pandas to over 1,800 in the past decade, but also to the increased public awareness of wildlife conservation. After ruling nearly 100 exhibitions around the world, the pandas will land in Korea for the first time. (Getty Images)
