Reintroduction Program – 2014

In 2014, two female pandas were scheduled to be released into the wild.  Xue Xue was released in October of 2014.  Unfortunately, Xue Xue fell ill (likely due to a bite from a bamboo rat) and died about a month after her release.  The second panda scheduled for release, Xin Yuan, sadly also fell ill, while in the final stages of the training program, and died prior to her release.
