Giant panda no longer endangered

The giant panda, long a symbol of the world's endangered species, is no longer threatened with extinction, according to China's foremost expert.

After a record 31 births in captivity this year, Zhang Hemin, the director of the China Research and Conservation Centre for the Giant Panda said breeding techniques had advanced to the point where cubs could be produced almost on demand.

The number of pandas born in captivity in China has more than tripled since 2000.
