Tai Shari was born at 3:4i am. on Saturday. .luly 9. Elltifi. at the Smithsonian National zoological Park in 1|litiashingtrin. llC. Tai Shan is the first offspring of Tian Tian and Mei Xiang. male and female giant pandas shipped from China to Washington in December 2WD. 5 There are only eight other pandas in the United States: two at 7.00 Atlanta in Georgia. two at the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee. and four at southern Calilhrnia's San Diego Zoo. where Fiai th has had three healthy cubs in the past seven 3'331‘5. At any zoo. the arrival o ['newly loaned pandas or the birth ot‘euhs brings it} surges in attendance. Theretiore. what makes pandas so special? There are two possible explanations: lirst. giant pandas are adorable—and people crave for a glimpse. The National Zoo’s lnternet panda cameras. which follow the daily activities oi'Tai Shari and his mom. draw an average ot'two million online visits a month. 15 Another rationale would be because giant pandas are not common but excruciatingly scarce. China‘s most recent national giant panda survey reported that 1.59'0' of the black—and—white bears survive in the rugged or rough hills oi' Siehuan. Shaanxi. and Gansu Provinces. tn captivity. there were only 133 pandas worldwide at the end ot'2t’lt‘t5: the | 1 Llnited States residents. a handful ot‘ others in 213 Mexico. Japan. Thailand. Germany. and Austria. and all the rest in zoos and research centers in their native China. Pandas are very expensive to maintain as they cost eaeh zoo an average of 2.6 million dollars a year. Add a cub, and the budget tops three million dollars. Add two cuhs and the tab approaches four million dollars. “Nobody.” says David 25 Wildt. head of the National Zoo‘s reproductive sciences program. “would ever commit this kind of money to any other species."

[Eiflt'kii St IPPI .Hv1t-N'I'AR lr' AI IVAN 'l-IL1|_..J';"«-_'l:'i. l9__l]__|NE MW The cost would go to providing titese high-profile animals the best of everything from the United States zoos: state-of—the-art {high-tech} habitats with 24—hour video monitoring, the services of devoted keepers and veterinarians, and 3t} abundant supplies of fresh bamboo as their meals. in addition, keepers give pandas a constantly changing assortment of plastic tubs. balls. and other toys to crush, wrestle, toss, and roll. Before this, it would be very difficult for United States to bring pandas to their zoo. This is because, there were a lot of controversies and speculations that 35 surrounded the issues. First, in the limbs and early 'Eltls, some short—temi loans li'om China to United States zoos seemed to be tnore about China‘s rental Tees and zoos" admissions income than conservation. 'l'hen. sexually mature animals were shipped to institutions that could not offer breeding opportunities. Some critics even aecused the Chinese of capturing wild pandas just to build up their rental 4t} stoek. Then, in IQS‘S the Fish and Wildlife Service declared a bold new policy: 11' United States zoos wanted pandas; they would have to become partners with China in giant panda conservation. China's conservation agencies needed information basic science about panda diseases, hormones, social skills, and needs for space 45 and privacy. in China’s zoos and breeding centers. caretakers needed training to help pandas having trouble with mating, to combat parasites and infections. and to bring up babies. Today, to qualify for a panda import permit. a United States zoo has to design a research program that benefits wild pandas, and it must also help China 5U pay lbr its own panda projects. As a result, workshops presented by United States and Chinese experts in China have trained nearly LEG!) of that country's eonservation professionals. Another hundred—plus have spent time at American zoos, working side by side witlt United States counterparts, then going hotne to share their new knowledge 55 and skills. Livery year each you also sends China a million dollars for the protection of pandas and their remaining habitat. China uses these funds, to install communications networks in reserves, ereate environmental education programs For schools near protected areas, and develop plans to restore degraded bamboo ibrests. so The whole world is hoping that this genuine international cooperation between China and United States will be able to keep the continuity of the survival of panda species.
