(ECNS) -- The zoo in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has launched a global call to find names for four panda cubs born on the same day to two mother pandas one month ago.
Yang Liye, management director of the zoo, said name solicitation for the pandas is a bid to raise awareness about protecting the ecological environment and pandas.
It's better that the panda names reflect the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China this year, he added.
The zoo also invited 79 pairs of human twins to celebrate the one-month anniversary of the four pandas on Tuesday.
Yin Yanqiang, a specialist at the zoo, said the facility faces difficulties in feeding all four panda cubs at the same time and has sought assistance from China Panda Protection and Research Center.
