Giant pandas, an endangered species, have seen their numbers hit by human encroachment in the highlands in southwestern China where they survive almost entirely on a diet of bamboo. However, according to the World Wildlife Fund, a 2014 census found 1,864 giant pandas living in the wild, almost double the number of the late 1970s.

On Monday, Vienna’s main zoo announced the birth of a naturally conceived giant panda cub, a rare event that it said was unique in Europe to the Austrian capital.
