Quake-hit panda reserve awaits Hong Kong aid – People’s Daily Online

People’s Daily Online reports

“Work to rebuild Sichuan province’s Wolong Nature Reserve, which was destroyed in the massive May 12 earthquake last year, is expected to start later this month after an aid program gets a nod from the Legislative Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government.

The epicenter of the 8-magnitude earthquake was just 30 km from Wolong. The disaster left a panda dead and another missing ever since.

The bureau has jointly developed a reconstruction plan with Peking University, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Beijing-based Turenscape Company.”
