A Wimbledon resident has reached the semi finals of a pan-European search to become a panda ambassador.

Aimee Cheung, 28, is one of 24 semi-finalists who will compete for the chance to take part in a five-month-long panda conservation tour of 11 countries working alongside Chengdu Panda Base conservationists.

She will compete in Edinburgh this weekend where she will take part in an education assignment at Edinburgh Zoo, a physical endurance course and a treasure hunt around Edinburgh city centre.

Miss Cheung said: "I’m delighted to have the chance to compete as part of the quest and hope that I will be able to realise a life-long dream of working with the giant panda and spreading the conservation message worldwide."

The final three global ‘Pambassadors’ will be announced in Chengdu, China, in November.
