Summary:
Habitat loss and slow natural reproduction have landed pandas on the endangered list. At China’s Wolong Nature Reserve, scientists oversee an innovative captive breeding program that uses artificial insemination to attempt to increase panda populations faster. However, a major earthquake in 2008 destroyed the panda’s habitat and cut off their food, threatening the breeding season. Wild Chronicles reports from China on the state of the panda.
