Giant panda Hua Jiao undergoes final physical examination

Staff members from the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda (CCRCGP) completed the last physical checkup for panda Hua Jiao at the Wolong nature reserve in Sichuan Province Wednesday afternoon. Experts say the giant female panda has passed all the requirements of the exam, which means she’s ready for reintroduction into the wild and a new chapter in her life.

Data from the exams will be used for reference for the preparation for the next batch of pandas being reintroduced into the wild. China began releasing captive-bred pandas into the wild in 2006 when Xiang Xiang, a five-year-old male, was released in Wolong National Nature Reserve. He died roughly a year later, after fighting with other pandas over food and territory.
