The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda welcomed its last giant panda cub scheduled to be born this year on Tuesday at Wolong National Nature Reserve in Southwest China's Sichuan province.

To date, the center has registered 24 giant panda newborns, including nine twin pairs, in 2021.

The center has recorded a relatively high birth rate of panda twins this year, suggesting an improvement in management and breeding methods, as well as the successful ex-situ protection of the species, according to Li Guo, an expert with the Shenshuping giant panda base.
