Giant Pandas

The first 18 giant pandas returned to their new home in the newly reconstructed China Giant Panda Protection and Research Center Base after it was damaged in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. Some reports also show that the number of pandas in the wild is on the rise. However, the International Union for Conservation of Nature does not believe there is enough certainty yet to reclassify the species from Endangered to Vulnerable. – Photos by AFP
