Synopsis by Leslie Birdwell
Quite possibly the world's most beloved animal, the Chinese Panda is nevertheless threatened with extinction. Human development destroys more of their range every year. Zoo breeding programs are disappointing as cubs rarely survive, and yet one in ten of the world's population of pandas lives in captivity. However, a dedicated team of Chinese scientists spent 10 years in the wild, observing the animals in their natural habitats to learn how to save them. Miraculously, the team found a newborn cub, which they named Hope, and her mother, called Double Lucky. Follow the team as they live in a difficult forest environment to learn everything they can to ensure the survival of the species, both in the wild and in protected areas.
