Why do pandas need incubators? It is very common for Giant Pandas to give birth to twins. Unfortunately, when twins are born, mother pandas will not care for both cubs. It is thought that the mother only has enough milk for one cub. In the wild, this means that only the stronger cub survives. In captivity, however, vets at the panda reserves in China have developed a method of exchanging the cubs or “cub swapping.” The caretakers leave one cub with the mother for her to care for and place one in an incubator. Staff is in the nursery, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
During the month of May, our friends at Pandas International collected enough generous donations to purchase three new incubators to save endangered Giant Panda cubs at CCRCGP!

❝Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.❞
