Wolong Panda Keepers Show their Grit

The recent winter storms that hit the Sichuan Province of China knocked the power out at the Wolong Panda Center at Gengda.  While the pandas LOVE the snow and cold weather with their nice heavy coats, the keepers have no such luxury.  Bundled in layers and crowded around fires (the same fires they had to use to make their meals), dedicated keepers brave the elements for our favorite bears.  We hope that they know know how very much we appreciate all that they do and all that they endure!
