Every year there are 30-50 newborn pandas given in China, and most of them is open to be adopted.   In general, one panda will cost about 1450000CNY for panda's whole long life (counting based on the average of 25 years). As an average, one panda needs about 50000 CNY per year for basic feeding, illness protection etc. Along with the elevation of the research abilities and increase of breeding number, the gap of funds for the fostering of pandas is getting bigger and bigger.
