In the picture, several giant pandas walked through the camera step by step at a leisurely pace, performing a special catwalk show of national treasures in winter.

“Now pandas appear more and more frequently and they can be seen almost every other day,” head of the Mao County Management Station of the Giant Panda National Park, Tao Boshan said. He believed that the frequent occurrence of pandas is mainly due to the establishment of the Giant Panda National Park, after which the protection of wild giant pandas has been strengthened and the ecology is getting better and better.

It is understood that according to the results of the fourth national giant panda survey, there are 348 wild giant pandas in Aba Prefecture, accounting for 18.7% of the national wild giant panda population and 25.1% of the Sichuan wild giant panda population, where it is a veritable habitat for giant pandas.
