        Wolong's Pandas

        In this video segment from Nature, learn about the wild pandas of the Wolong Conservation Center in China. When the bamboo plant, the panda's main source of food, began to die off in the 1980s, the center responded by rescuing starving pandas from the wild. Although the center initially intended to release the pandas once they were nursed back to health, the danger from poachers had become a serious problem. The center had also hoped to breed the pandas; but reproduction in captivity did not occur for many years. To learn about China's panda population, see the "Bamboo Mountain" video segment of this two-part series.
