Kung Fu Panda Helps Pandas

The team also partnered with Conservation International to provide a $1 million donation to aid in the protection of the endangered species. The money comes at a good time, since Chinese officials predict that more wild pandas will require assistance this winter. The region's devastating May earthquake affected 80 percent of the bears' habitat.
