Mother pandas train their cubs how to survive before being returned to nature

The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in Wolong in Sichuan province, has recently been exploring ways of returning its captives to the wild, and has already made a number of breakthroughs.

Since 2010, more than 30 giant panda cubs have taken part in rehearsals to reintroduce cubs to the wild by learning to rely on their mothers.

Eleven cubs so far have been released into the wild, nine of whom are known to be alive.
