四川省からの手紙

Hello まあく まさこ, 
Here is a few panda's infomation: The eight “Olympic Pandas” will come back to Sichuan later: those days, the eight Sichuan pandas were in Beijing and Cheering for the Olympic Games. They were so happy! Everyday, there are so many foreigner visiting them. Under the careful nursery of the keepers, every one of them put on weight 3-4 kg. It is planed that they would be back in October. But now the return trip will be postponed. In May, after suffering the earthquake, the eight pandas arrived at the Beijing Zoo with the dust of Wolong. They look so dirty. So the keeper began to bathe them once a week with a special shampoo, and at the same time, pay attention to their nutrition. Everyday, the keeper will feed them with the Wo Wo Tou, carrot, apple and milk and so on. Once arriving at the Beijing Zoo, they had a poor appetite, and did not like the bamboo in Beijing, and ate up 2 to 3 kg bamboo everyday. Nowadays, they get used to the situation in Beijing Zoo now, and have a good appetite. And almost every one of them put 3 to 4 kg on weight. All of them are over one year old, sub-adult pandas, the loveliest group of the pandas. During the Olympic time, they went into the playground and “meet” the visitors around 7 o’clock morning, and go back to the office at 6 o’clock afternoon. According to the old plan, the eight pandas would be back to Sichuan in October after finish the exhibition. New, almost all of the captive pandas in Wolong are transferred to Ya’an, only few pandas born in 2007 stay in Wolong. The panda "Ai Hua" (Wolong office name is Mei Xin)you adopted is one of the eight “Olympic Pandas”. Among the eight pandas, the oldest one is panda “An An”, and the youngest one is panda “Duo Duo”. And the naughtiest one is the panda “An An”. There was a funny story about her. When keeper was playing with another panda, An An ran to the keeper by surprise, and carry the thin keeper on her back and ran away. In the end, the thin keeper was thrown into the pool in the enclosure. It was very cold at that time. The keeper shivered in the pool, but An An was so happy and ran into the pool also, and wanted to play with the keeper. The keeper stood up and ran away as soon as she can. 

We hope you like the photo.

Best wishes,

四川省からの手紙 その7

愛華(アイホァ)は、地震の後、北京動物園に行ったんですね。元気に暮らしてるみたいですね。体重も一番あるって。でも、あの臥竜の自然の中で生まれ育ったアイホァ、北京の環境に馴れてこれからもすくすく育ってくれれば嬉しいけど。 これから北京へは沢山の世界中の人々が訪れるだろうから、アイホァ、びっくりして、ストレス感じたりしないないようにね。 元気で、祈ってます。 

 Dear まあく まさこ, 
 How are you? Warmly greetings from Wolong Panda Club. I am M.L. So glad to contact with you about the information of your panda baby Ai Hua. She was scared by the earthquake on May 12th. But with keepers’ good care, she recovered quickly. Because of the earthquake, the mountains on the two sides of our center slided and destroyed many enclosures, of which, seven can not use any more and another 12 was ruined severely. Therefore, the enclosures that can be used decreased a lot. To make sure that pandas have enough space for movement, on May 18th, 8 Olympic cubs started their journey, including your baby. They passed by two high mountains with the attitude of over 4000m, Baoxing County and Ya’an City, and then arrived at Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Center. In Chengdu, the Wowotou is different from that at Wolong. At first, she had little and mainly ate bamboos and bamboo shoots. With keepers’ adjustment, she began to have a little Wowotou and recovered gradually. On May 24th, she took a flight to Beijing. As soon as she lived in Beijing Zoo, she started eating bamboos and bamboo shoots, never feeling tired. To the new environment, she adapts rapidly. On June 5th, she and her 7 partners met with visitors. They are very lively and active. She likes movement, often taking a walk in the yard. Now they have 6 meals every day. The main food is Wowotou, bamboo, bamboo shoot and fruit. She likes bamboo leaves very much. And she is good at enjoying her life, often lying on the ground when having bamboos. Now she weighs 67kg, the heaviest cub among her partners. The attached is her picture in Beijing Zoo. 

Best regards, 

M. L

四川省からの手紙 その6

Dearまあく まさこ, 

 How are you today? Thank you for caring the giant pandas. And thank you for your suporting of the giant panda. 

The earthquake happened at 14:28. At that moment, there were over 20 worker prepared to start their work in the afternoon. Besides of them, there were 32 foreign travelers in the garden watching the giant pandas. The earthquake was lasting for over 1 minute, most of the giant pandas in the garden were scared a lot, and the fallen stones cut off the entrance of the giant panda garden.

In the deathly emergence situation, with the leading of director Mr. Huang Yan, the workers deal with the situation in good order. And the path was built up at once, which was accessing to the bridge out of the giant garden. The foreign travelers were safely sent out of the garden through the path at first, and then the female workers were sent out. And the 12 male worker still stayed in the garden to protect the giant panda. 

13.5, a lot of aftershocks came often, the workers of the research center kept on going to the center to look after the giant pandas.

In the following days, the keepers go to the research center to start the daily work at 8:30; and feed the giant panda 4 times a day with the bamboo, wowotou and carrot, and milk to the panda babies born in last year. But the water offer of the whole garden was destroyed, everyday, the keeper will go to carry the water to the giant pandas. 

Due to the 512 earthquake, part of the mountain fell down. A lot of the giant panda enclosures were broken, 7 of them cannot be used any more, and about 12 of them were damaged a lot. 

 The enclosures which can be used reduced a lot. In order to offer enough yard for the giant pandas to stay and play, the experts at the research center worked out a decision that sending some giant pandas to the Bifengxia Base(Yaan), which is a branch of the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda; and the 8 giant pandas which should go to Beijing for the Olympics, started their journey already. The rest pandas were put into these enclosures, which were much safer. So please don’t be worried! 

Before the earthquake, there were 63 giant pandas in the Giant Panda Garden, and now, there are 46 giant pandas. 

The enclosure the seven giant pandas born in 2006 lived in before the earthquake is so closed to the mountain. Therefore the 07 baby pandas (Si Xue, Si Jia, Yi Bao, Qian Qian,Mei Xin, Fu Ni) moved into the a little smaller enclosure, which is next to the fish pool. Even this enclosure is a bit smaller than the one they used to live, but much safer. They were scared a lot once the earthquake happened. Then in the following days, they became much quite; now they are much better and active than that in the beginning days. Every day, there will be three keepers looking after them. In order to enrich their environment, the worker tried their best to build up a big wooden craft for them. They like to stay on the craft and enjoy the sunny day very much. But they are not as active as before. 

The giant panda you adopted Ai Hua was scared a little in the earthquake. Now it is basically nature. Every day, the keeper will feed it four times. When outdoor, and in the yard of the enclosure, it likes to following panda Qian Qian. 

The pictures attached to the mail are the pictures of the Giant Panda Garden and the pictures that you adopted, please check them!:) 

Best wishes,

四川省からの手紙 その4

愛華は元気のようです!

でも,やっぱりsheとheがごっちゃです。中国語には彼彼女の区別がないからでしょうか?

------------------------------

The baby you adopted is about 36KG now and the keeper feed her two times one day, and each time about 650 grams milk. She has five teeth now and he can eat much “wowotou” ,bamboo shoot and  fresh bamboo leaves.

 

Thanks
