Bao Bao's dating game is next level! She aims to save the species.
All the bittersweet feels are happening. Today's the day that Bao Bao leaves the National Zoo to head to China and help save the giant panda species.
That's good, right? So why are we crying?
I mean, she has her own plane (dubbed the FedEx Panda Express, of course) and everything.
HOW WILL SHE BE SAVING GIANT PANDAS EVERYWHERE?
Many parents hope their children will one day grow up and make happy, successful matches with suitable partners. Some take a more hands-on approach, setting their kids up with suitable matches and letting love take root.
Bao Bao's keepers are firmly in the matchmaker category, essentially acting like Panda Tinder to hook Bao Bao up with suitable mates. (If there was a Panda Dating Game, we would so watch it.)
