The China Wildlife Conservation Association has signed agreements with the Madrid Zoo Aquarium of Spain and the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance of the United States to cooperate in the conservation of giant pandas, as part of efforts to intensify the protection of the species at a global level.

“Ensuring the health and safety of giant pandas living abroad is the most important premise and basis of international cooperation,” said a source at the association. The entity will further strengthen daily health monitoring and physical examinations of giant pandas living abroad and ensure full coverage of field inspections and assessments in 2024.

Giant pandas play the role of “ambassadors”, promoting bridges of friendship between China and other countries. Since the 1990s, China has carried out joint protection research initiatives with 26 institutions from 20 countries and successfully raised 68 giant panda cubs in 41 litters.
