Cute alert! Dinner time for young giant pandas

As the world of conservation mourns the recent death in China of the world’s oldest giant panda, aged 37, newborns are providing fresh hope for the endangered species.

The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is a major tourist attraction in China’s southwestern Sichuan Province but also one of the main centres fighting to boost the giant panda population.

Euronews was given special permission to film some of the young pandas as they enjoyed dinner, as well as some cute newborns that visitors are swooning over.

The giant panda has been brought back from the brink of extinction thanks to strong conservation efforts, but the fight is far from over.
