Panda Bears Doing Better

Good news from the mountains of Sichuan province in China --
Panda bears are making a comeback after dwindling to the point of being endangered.

In zoos under the protection of lock & key and watchful eyes, pandas refuse to mate. I probably would too. But the solution is just to leave them alone to do their own wild thing. The key factoid here is that the wilderness allowed for the pandas increased by 65%, and the numbers of pandas then increased by 40%.

As they say in Chinese, "fey hua!" -- or loosely translated, "No shit Sherlock!"
