Panda remains a long-standing symbol of China, but at the same time, it is a rare species which is on the verge of extinction. Because of the long extermination of these animals and a sharp reduction in the area of their habitat in the world there are about 1,600 pandas. Specialists in environmental protection years of trying to increase the population of these adorable black and white bears.
In 2005 scientists from the National reserve Wolong in China for the sake of the experiment were released into the wild a young male Panda, but he soon died, most likely, the result of a fight with wild pandas. It was then that the reserve Director Zhang Hemin, who was nicknamed Papa Panda and his team realized that born in captivity, the animals really don’t know how to be pandas. Then it was decided to remake the entire program from scratch.
Chinese experts have decided that the best way to raise pandas suitable for life in the wild — is to erase all traces of human presence from their world and allow mothers to raise their offspring independently.
