An Update On Tao Tao

/ Post by Pandas International via the Panda Reintroduction Program

Tao Tao, the Giant Panda released into the wild on October 11th,appears to be adapting to his new life.  Huang Yan, the scientist in charge of the Panda Reintroduction Project in China, reported this week that Tao Tao’s GPS collar is working well and that researchers in the field have been able to physically locate him as well. Huang also stated that when Tao Tao noticed the researchers, he quickly ran away from them indicating that his training for reintroduction appears to be working. The Reintroduction Research is based at the Hetaoping Panda Center in the Wolong Nature Reserve.
