See the World Dif­fer­ently

The surely fluffi­est photo shoot in the world took place in China last Septem­ber, when the Chengdu Re­search Base of Gi­ant Panda Breed­ing pre­sented a group of 23 bear cubs to the public. Th­ese cute lit­tle bears are raised to help pre­vent the over­all ex­tinc­tion of pan­das. The pro­gram be­gan in 1987 with only 6 bears—to­day there are more than 50. The ma­jor­ity of th­ese cud­dly crit­ters can never be set free un­for­tu­nately, as close con­tact to hu­mans leaves them un­pre­pared for a life in the wild.
