Pandas have been known to be among the endangered species of animals today. While they are slowly known to be nearing extinction, the good news from China is that there are 35 new panda cubs that have been bred and saved thanks to the breeding techniques employed by the Breeding Techniques for the Giant Panda in China.
Chengdu – Thirty-one giant panda cubs were born worldwide this year and 25 have survived, according to Zhang Zhihe, director of the Chinese Committee of Breeding Techniques for the Giant Panda.
Zhang made the remarks on Monday during the opening ceremony of the five-day 18th Annual Meeting of the Chinese Committee of Breeding Techniques for the Giant Panda held in the capital of Southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
Panda protection organizations like the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in the Wolong Nature Reserve and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding have helped to achieve high cub birth and survival rates of the black and white animal.
