Giant panda released into the wild caught on camera for the first time
Xiaohetao's giant panda was released into the wild three years ago. And just now, for the first time, she got into the lens of an infrared camera in a nature reserve in Sichuan province. The researchers note: the bamboo bear is in excellent shape and has fully adapted to the new habitat! Scientists made such conclusions by studying data from the panda's GPS collar and analyzing video footage from the reserve.
Wu Daifu, from the China Research Center for the Protection and Study of Giant Pandas:< /i>
“Before she was a year old, Xiaohetao spent most of her time with her mother. It was a critical period for her behavioral development and growth, so we taught her some basic survival skills.”
From a small teenager, Xiaohetao grew into a strong panda and was able to settle into the wild. All thanks to a special training program and placement in the natural habitat of pandas bred in captivity. Territories where bamboo bears can be released into a new life are selected according to strict criteria.
Wu Daifu, China Research Center for the Protection and Study of Giant Pandas:< /b>
“In order for a panda to give birth to healthy offspring, it is necessary to avoid places where its blood relatives live or will live. But it is also important to choose territories where there are no animals with genes that are too far apart - sometimes this also leads to the birth of weak offspring.
The program has been operating since 2003, during which time the China Research Center for the Protection and Study of Giant Pandas has released into the wild nature of nine giant pandas, all of them have successfully adapted to the new environment.
