China’s panda population increases due to improved habitat protection

China’s panda population has been increasing as the country has continuously improved their habitats. The number of wild pandas in China has increased from 1,114 in the 1970s to 1,864 now, according to data released by the State Forestry and Grassland Administration. A total of 10 giant panda cubs have been born at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, in southwest China’s Sichuan Province, this year, including four pairs of twins. One of the pairs of twins was a pigeon pair, meaning one girl and one boy.

The twin rate for giant pandas has now reached 70 percent. All 10 newborn pandas are healthy, even little Run Jiu, who recently recovered after receiving nine stitches for a cut on her head. Run Jiu is eating normally again and has regained the weight she lost during her recovery. Giant panda Ya Yun give birth to the pigeon pair on June 5. Since then, newborn cubs have arrived every month. Breeders at the center are busy helping the mothers care for their young ones.
