Pandas in Paris

In a demonstration of the number of pandas thought to still exist in the wild, the World Wildlife Fund has set out 1600 pandas in the French capital. "The number is 40 per cent more than were previously thought to exist but there are still serious threats to the survival of the animal. The findings come as a result of a four-year-long study of pandas and their habitat carried out by the State Forestry Administration of China and WWF, the global conservation organisation."
