Beijing, Nov.15 (People's Daily Online) --The number of captive pandas in China has reached 328, the State Forestry Administration said on Nov. 4.

An official from the State Forestry Administration said that China's panda breeding and raising techniques are increasingly sophisticated. China made breakthroughs in breeding and raising work in 2011 and has enabled 15 pandas to become pregnant and give birth to 25 panda cubs, of which 20 survived.

Of the panda cubs that have survived, 12 were born at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, seven at the China Conservation and Research Centre for Giant Panda and one at the Chongqing Municipal Zoo.

The number of captive pandas in China stood at 312 as of the end of November 2010.
