Travel Log: The Ladies (and Gentleman) of the New Breeding Center

The new Breeding Center at Bifengxia is quite large with just over a dozen enclosures, each with indoor and outdoor areas for the pandas. The onsite keepers office is equipped with monitors to keep a virtual eye on the pandas in addition to the staff seeing to their physical needs. The monitors are especially helpful during birthing and the earliest days after cubs are born, when mothers are reluctant to “share” their cubs with the keepers and vets.

In addition to the moms that we featured earlier this week who are raising cubs, there are eight other pandas currently in residence at the New Breeding Center. Meet them here, and visit some of their friends via HD live cam here.
