ABC Wednesday - P

Pandas After The Earthquake in China - click on each picture to enlarge it.

The earthquake was right in the area where giant pandas live.
Most pandas in this area were rescued, particular attention was given to the babies, all the pandas were scared. The photos were taken right after earthquake and during rescue effort care. All the pandas were released back into the wild and it was noted that all of the bears stayed together.

Look at these babies!

Staying here maybe safer...

These pictures are too cute to not share ... don't you agree?

All these photos were sent to me in an email recently so I have no idea who the photographer is.

These are delightful photos and I'm so glad you shared them. Those pandas must have been terrified and lucky that people came to their rescue.

Pandas really are so cute. I am glad they were rescued and survived and returned to the wild. It's nice to know they stayed together, kind of like a little Panda family. Thanks for sharing that lovely story.

I love those panda pictures. I've seen them before, and I think someone was having you on about all these pandas being released into the wild and staying together.
They were all rescued from the Wolong Panda Sanctuary in Chengdu, which was near the epicenter of the quake. Wolong had a dozen or more youngsters in their nursery at the time, as well as adult pandas.
I have a daily "panda alert" on my e-mail, so I get all the news stories about pandas when things happen. The pandas who were released into the wild were three pregnant females, released into an area set up with observation cameras beforehand, so that if any had trouble, they could be helped.
Thank you, however, for choosing one of my favorite subjects for P day at ABC Wednesday. Pandas are the poster children for endangered species conservation and much is being learned about them and from them. A wonderful choice, Anne.
