Giant Pandas – level 2

04-10-2016 15:00

This year, twenty-three pandas were born in a breeding centre in China. The public recently saw them for the first time.

It is very difficult to make pandas reproduce in captivity, so the group of pandas is great news.

People recently took giant pandas off the endangered species list because their numbers are up.

Difficult words: breeding centre (centre where pandas reproduce – have babies), captivity (not free, in a place like a zoo), endangered species (animals which may die out soon).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
