Ten giant panda cubs will be displayed in conjunction with the Shanghai World Expo next year. This will provide millions of Chinese and foreign visitors an opportunity to view the highly endangered species.

The six females and four males will arrive in January and spend six months at the Shanghai Zoo. Following that, they will spend half a year at the Wild Zoo of Shanghai. The Expo, which begins May 1st and runs for six months, is expected to draw 70 million visitors. The Shanghai Zoo, which already has three older giant pandas, refurbished its panda house to accommodate the new arrivals.
