A key, national-level laboratory was set up on Tuesday in China's Giant Panda National Park to enhance research on the protection of the area's rare animals.

It's the first national scale lab focused on protecting giant pandas along with 144 other species, like golden snub-nosed monkeys and snow leopards.

"We are going to find out why these species are on the edge of extinction and how to save them," Zhang Hemin, deputy head of the lab, told CCTV.

"We have drafted a three-year plan to study some key problems, including how they breed, the diseases they're catching, the possibility of importing other species and many more," he added.
