Two Chinese Pandas appointed as Image Ambassadors for UNDP

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has indicated that it has appointed a set of twin Chinese pandas as its new image ambassadors.

Authorities in China showcased 13 baby pandas to the public for the first time in Chengdu city. The little pandas appeared at "Discovering Twin Cubs", which was jointly organised by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. It was aimed at encouraging people from around the world to protect wild animals.

Patrick Haverman, deputy country director at UNDP, declared that the twin cubs are the new image ambassadors for the organisation. The twin cubs were born to a 14 year old panda named Qinhe in September this year.Haverman has also asked the fans from around the world to name the two tiny pandas. All the 13 baby pandas are also yet to be named by the fans from around the world.

Official said that a total of 15 panda cubs including 12 twins were born this year in the Chengdu research base. Experts are not sure as to why so many twins are being born in the country but some say that it might be linked tobetter feeding and management in the breeding centre.
