This is one of the few areas in the world where giant pandas live in the wild. When they were first seen in the 1930’s thet were virtually extinct due to environmental factors and also because they are solitary creatures averse to mating.
The scientists here are trying to teach them to breed ( the mind boggles ) but the ultimate aim is to teach them to breed in the wild.
These are red pandas. They were more playful and active than their black and white relatives and more fun to watch!
