I believe we can all agree that pandas are among the world’s cutest and most huggable creatures.
These adorable animals are kept in a special breeding program and childcare at the Chengdu Research Base in China.
These endangered animals are unique not just because of their cuteness, but also because breeding pandas is extremely difficult.
Females are only able to reproduce for around 2-3 days each year.
They can only have one cub every two years if the breeding is effective.
Imagine a big bunch of cute newborn pandas together in one location!
The research center is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving pandas from extinction.
They’ve long been deemed endangered, and their numbers have plummeted in recent years.
The cuddly bear population began to recover thanks to the work of organizations like these.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) downgraded pandas from ‘endangered’ to ‘vulnerable’ status in 2016.
There are approximately 1,864 pandas left in the wild, according to the most current study (2020).
