Hi Ross

Thats good news, thanks.

I would like to read about these bits of news. Have you any links or advice as to where to look please. In respect of White Lions I remember reading about a couple in a book I have somewhere. I had understood that their survival chances where thought to be small. Can any one comment?

Cheers

Wonderful news Ross,

Let us hope that their release into their natural environment will be a resounding success, and let's hope that mankind play their part in their future by leaving them in peace and leave their natural habitat alone!!

You have certainly cheered me up with that wonderful news.

I think I will nominate you to be our Wildlife reporter. Your love of all creatures great and small is obvious to see.

Brilliant news Ross. Certainly cheered me up especially the Panda one. I've recently watched a program on Pandas and one female was shown raising a tiny baby. I could not believe how tiny this baby was especially compared to the size of a fully grown Panda. The mother was so gentle and caring it was amazing and the baby so tiny and vulnerable it was hard to believe that some of them manage to grow up into big Pandas. The program also said how hard it is for Panda's to survive in the Wild and that not many babies make it. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this Panda will have a happy future.
