Giant panda Ya Ya arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Thursday afternoon from Memphis, Tennessee.
Ya Ya returned to China from the United States after a 20-year loan for a joint research and conservation project, according to the National Forestry and Grassland Administration.
On the same day, many people volunteered to wait at the Shanghai Zoo to welcome Ya Ya. Some people said they paid particular attention to Ya Ya in the past three months. Although they could not see Ya Ya on that day, they still hoped that Ya Ya could feel everyone's love.
