Four Newly Born Giant Panda Cubs Boosts Endangered Species
Four giant panda cubs have been born late Saturday within 14 hours in China's Breeding Research Centre, including female twins.
The giant panda is one of the world's most endangered species, because of the destruction of its forest habitat and lack of contact between isolated populations.
According to experts only about 1,600 pandas remain in the wild, mostly in Sichuan and neighbouring Shaanxi and Gansu provinces.
Another 180 pandas are being raised in captivity in China.
