The 20-episode bilingual documentary Panda Stories has been aired on Mango TV, taking audiences on a trip across oceans and over mountains.

Following in the footsteps of cute pandas, the documentary presents the life of pandas living overseas, where they are loved and cared for.  

Produced by the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Panda, Mango TV and other organizations, the show takes panda culture as its core and records their overseas lives, living environments and connection with human beings, highlighting the profound concept of harmonious coexistence between humanity and nature. 

In order to interpret the world of giant pandas more comprehensively, the documentary invited experts and breeders from the giant panda conservation and research center to popularize knowledge about pandas, from the things they need to do before going abroad to how giant panda mothers carefully take care of their cubs.

The Chinese giant panda is a messenger of peace and friendship. With its cute appearance, rareness and profound cultural heritage, it is deeply loved by people around the world. People created a global panda award for pandas and some fans even take photos of cute pandas the day immediately after the animals arrive in their countries.  

This love also extends to all parts of the world. For instance, Qatar has specially built a luxurious panda venue covering an area of 120,000 square meters for pandas Jingjing and Sihai.

This humanistic care is affecting the world. Through the giant panda, China is telling the story of the harmonious coexistence between China and the world, and between mankind and nature. At the same time, it is also conveying to the world a broad mind of openness, tolerance, and love for nature.
