Don't Go! Panda Cub Clings to Keeper's Leg at a Research Facility
11 / 09 / 2014, Boston.com
A giant panda grabbed ahold of his keeper's leg and held on tight as he tried to close the gate at an enclosure in a research base in China's southwestern city of Chengdu. Established in 1987, the mission at Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is to protect the endangered species through research and conservation efforts. Forty-nine pandas were born in China last year, but only 42 of them survived.
