“A Study of Giant Panda Personality and Potential for Reintroduction into the Wild”

Amber will discuss her recently completed research on Giant Pandas in China. For this research, various objects and scents were placed inside of mother and cub pair enclosures while camera traps recorded their interactions. Panda interactions with the objects and scents were scored using an ethogram. The behaviors recorded will help with determining what pandas might be best suited for reintroduction into the wild.
