Giant panda Ba Xi runs to the forest at Liziping Nature Reserve in southwest China's Sichuan Province, Nov. 23, 2017. A pair of giant panda, male and female, were released into Liziping Nature Reserve on Thursday as part of a program to rebuild the wild panda population. Ba Xi, the male, was born in July 2015, and Ying Xue is just 14 days older. China has 518 giant pandas in captivity. However, the captive stock lacks genetic diversity. China plans to create a giant panda national park and releasing more pandas into the wild. (Xinhua/Yang Jin)
