A chartered plane carrying two giant pandas from southwest China's Sichuan Province arrives at De Gaulle Airport in Paris Jan. 15, 2012. The two giant pandas -- Yuan Zai and Huan Huan, will stay at the Beauval Zoo in central France for 10 years under a conservation and research agreement between China and France, according to the Chengdu Giant Panda Research Center, home to the pair and over 100 other pandas in Sichuan Province. Giant pandas are indigenous to China and are among the world's most endangered species. About 300 of the animals have been bred in captivity and 1,596 others live in the wild, mostly in Sichuan.
