A group of panda cubs napped earlier this week at a nursery in the research base of the Giant Panda Breeding Center in Chengdu, located in China’s Sichuan Province. China is trying to determine how many of the endangered animals live in the wild with its once-a-decade panda census. The last count found 1,596 pandas left in the wild, with the majority in Sichuan.
