每日一学(5月25日)QUAKE LEAVES PANDAS IN DIRE NEED OF BAMBOO.

CHENGDU  -- The deadly earthquake that jolted southwest China's Sichuan Province on May 12 has destroyed the homes of giant pandas and left the bears in dire need of their favorite food, bamboo.

Panda keepers at the Wolong Nature Reserve, about 30 kilometers from the epicenter of the 8.0-magnitude quake, have had difficulty in reaching the animals' food resources as the quake, continuous aftershocks and subsequent landslides damaged mountain roads, said Zhou Xiaoping, an official with the Wolong-based China Giant Panda Protection and Research Center.

Starting on Friday, fresh bamboo began to arrive from Baoxing County, another giant panda habitat about 50 km southwest of Wolong, he said. "The road conditions are very bad and transportation takes much longer than normal. But thank goodness, the worst food crisis is almost over." [Agencies]
