WASHINGTON, April 24,China Daily - This year, the National Zoo in Washington will be celebrating giant panda breeding season in a very special way.

"This is the first time we've imported semen from China for panda breeding," said Dennis Kelly, director of the zoo.

Caitlin Burrell, a research scientist at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI), arrived at Dulles International Airport on April 20 with frozen panda semen from China.

"Getting the sperm here was a huge endeavor," said Dr Copper Aitken-Palmer, a veterinarian at SCBI. "It sets a nice precedent, because it really has never happened here in the United States before. It opens up a lot of possibilities."
