Giant Pandas – level 3

04-10-2016 15:00

A group of 23 adorable panda cubs made their public debut in China. They were showing off at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base in the Sichuan province after being born there this year. This was a huge accomplishment because it is very difficult to make pandas reproduce in captivity.

Recently, people took giant pandas off the endangered species list because of a population rebound in China. The outing of the panda cubs shows exactly how much effort people are putting into conservation work.

Difficult words: adorable (cute, sweet), endangered species (animals which may die out soon), rebound (a recovery).
