Fu Bao, a celebrity giant panda born in South Korea and returned to China in early April, is expected to meet the public in June at its new home in southwest China's Sichuan Province.

On May 4, Fu Bao ended its month-long quarantine and moved into the Shenshuping Base in Wolong National Nature Reserve. The bear is gradually adapting to the new environment and is in good health.

According to the breeder, giant pandas often need to go through quarantine and an adjustment period after returning to China from overseas. The quarantine usually takes a month and the adjustment, a little longer. The time needed to acclimatize to a new living environment, climate, food and breeding team varies from panda to panda.

Fu Bao has been placed inside the base's breeding park, where there are communication windows between each panda's enclosure, allowing it to quickly get familiar with its neighbors. It's also easier for breeders to observe and record the panda's behavior at close quarters.

Beloved Fu Bao, which means "lucky treasure," is the first giant panda that was born in the Republic of Korea (ROK) to Le Bao and Ai Bao, the pandas leased by China to the country in 2016. It will turn four years old in July. Fu Bao is a celebrity in ROK as well as in China and the public eagerly awaits her debut.
