Study on improving survival rate of giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)


, : Study on improving survival rate of giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca). Chinese Journal of Zoology 38(5): 58-63

The effectiveness of four different methods of rearing captive bred infant pandas were compared. These methods were mother-rearing, a combination of mother-rearing and hand-rearing, surrogate mother-rearing and hand-rearing. It was important in hand-rearing to imitate maternal rearing behaviour and the maternal-infant environment. Artificial nests were easy to make and replace in incubators.
