Simon Nash said: "I think the original target was to breed around 300 pandas, but now they're up to around 600, which is a fantastic achievement, but has created another problem, as most of these animals are now not bred to have the characteristics to survive in the wild," "For many years, pandas couldn't go back into the wild as they were going back to isolated pockets. But what the Chinese authorities have done, which is brilliant, is (the protection of) more of them, and they plan to link them all into one giant reserve, which would mean a better chance of survival in the wild, the ability to survive bamboo dying off, and to interbreed, so they go back into a world with more space and more chances of their own territorial areas" External link

Kimberley Hockings said: “Treating leprosy in humans is relatively straightforward, especially if it’s diagnosed early enough,” “But for animals that aren’t habituated to humans, such as these particular populations, it’s very difficult to administer antibiotics.
