In 2019, a total of 32 panda cubs, 17 male and 15 female, were born and survived in the breeding base, bringing the total number of captive pandas to 312.
The number of captive giant pandas in the world has reached 600.
As the world's largest international scientific research and cooperation platform for giant pandas, the research center has established giant panda cooperation with 16 zoos from 14 countries and regions.
