Thread subject: Atlanta Panda Cam going offline

||What a bummer! The Atlanta Panda Cam has announced that they're taking the cam down due to the cost and the poor economy. They'll be posting videos and images of the new cub instead.

||Did they loose their Turner $$? I though CNN backed that one.

||Yes, they've had several sponsors, CNN included. Earthlink also did it for a while.
Hard to imagine they'd have a difficult time finding a corporate sponsor, even if they cut back their hours to just part of each day. The cub helps promote the zoo and Atlanta.
Such a shame to lose the feed when the cub is just starting to walk.

||Bummer. I hope they find new funding.

||How sad to lose this wonderful cam. It has to have brought so many people to the zoo and to learning more about the scarcity of Panda's.

||That is a shame. I was at the Atlanta Hartsfield Airport last Sat. and went to the Atlanta Zoo shop in the airport while I was waiting for my flight back to LI and bought my neice a cute panda bear. Bummer
