I saw hardly any wildlife in China. I did see Lesser Pandas (Ailurus fulgens, german: Kleiner Panda, french: Petit panda) well as the Giant Pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca, german: Großer Panda, french: Panda géant) in a zoo in Chongqing, and more Giant Pandas in the Wolong Panda Reserve.

The Wolong Panda Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Here are a few pictures of nature in China.
