'Red Pandas' — by Joel Sartore
Red panda cubs are the most obvious example of zoo-borne specie who survive with support from humans.

Very cute little panda cubs - right here in Lincoln! Thanks for taking the species to the people! It is the best way to show what is happening to our earth and we CAN do something about species loss. We can think, right?
The picture against the black background accentuates the incredible coat, little claws and features of this unique creature. It's an Ailluridae. A family in the mammal order Carnivora. The family comprises the Red Panda (the sole living representative) and its extinct relatives. It's not truly a bear, being more closely related to, yet completely separate from, skunks, weasels, coatis kinkajoos, and raccoons among others. Cool family tree.
Cute photo. I have to admit that I am not getting this series--rare animals, in focus, on a black background. Just isn't saying anything to me. Sorry, don't mean to be a downer.
