Panda Love: The Secret Lives of Pandas is a collection of incredible images of these gentle giants. Ami Vitale's stunning photographs, taken on location in China, document the efforts to breed pandas and release them back into the wild. Vitale was given unprecedented access to the pandas and her photos give an amazing insight into the bears' lives in both the sanctuaries and their natural habitat. China may be on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador, and Panda Love lovingly documents the process of putting the wild back into an icon.
The mission of the National Zoological Park is to provide leadership in animal care, to advance scientific excellence in conserving wildlife, to teach and inspire people to engage in conservation and to practice conservation leadership. Since giant pandas first arrived at the Zoo in 1972, animal care staff and scientists have studied their biology, behavior, breeding and more.
