Eight gi­ant panda cubs posed for Lu­nar New Year pho­tos on Wed­nes­day at a breed­ing base in Sichuan prov­ince. The eight cubs, in­clud­ing three twin pairs, were all born last year. At the China Gi­ant Panda Pro­tec­tion and Re­search Cen­ter, they walked, climbed up trees and played with toys in the pres­ence of their keep­ers. Last year, 27 cubs were born at the cen­ter and 22 of them sur­vived. Zhang Yanli, 41, is a res­i­dent of Urumqi, cap­i­tal of the Xin­jiang au­tonomous re­gion. She lost her hands in an ac­ci­dent three years ago. To sup­port her fam­ily, Zhang set up a stall on the street sell­ing scarves and gloves. Last Sun­day, a group of donors vis­ited Zhang and her son to give them train tick­ets to Zhang’s home­town in He­nan prov­ince. Visit our web­site to read her story.
