Bifengxia in Complete Electrical Black Out


The Giant Panda Research Centre at Bifengxia (BFX), Sichuan, China has been without power for a couple of days and it will be a few more days until full power is restored.

BFX is built on a remote mountain two hours drive away from Chengdu. It appears that the main power supply has destroyed. Staff from the electricity company are working around the clock to repair the supply.

Currently BFX is using multiple generators to provide emergency to run the incubators for the new cubs there and other equipment needed to look after the Giant Pandas there who are due to have cubs any time.

I hope they get power back soon. The lives of this years panda cubs could be at stake.
