Long live China's giant panda – 大熊猫万岁
By Johnny Erling
China's panda, since 1961 the heraldic animal of the world's largest nature conservation organization "World Wide Fund for Nature" (WWF), is no longer threatened with extinction. According to Beijing figures, the black and white bears are multiplying at an ever-faster rate. There are currently almost 2,500 specimens living in the wild and as offspring, enough to preserve the species. The People's Republic is now scoring points for its survival just before the start of the UN Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species COP 15 in Kunming. In any case, the panda is China's perfect image carrier.
