Twin Panda Cubs Born in Chengdu

A giant panda named Yaxing gave birth to twin panda cubs June 30th at the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Both mother and the cubs, a female and a male, are healthy and doing well. The research base is home to 129 captive-bred giant pandas, the most in the world, which is helping to bolster the panda population. It is estimated that approximately 1,600 pandas live in the wild. The previous week, a giant panda named Yangyang gave birth to twins in China’s Shaanxi province. China is a hub for panda births, with 49 cubs born last year in China, with 42 surviving.
