February 1 - Cherub of the mist

The red panda is a rare animal that lives in a region from Nepal, north-eastern India, Bhutan and into China. Their population is believed to be about 2500.

Cherub of the Mist is a documentary about two red female pandas, Mini and Sweety, who were bred in a zoo, released into the wild and followed up for a period of 14 months. The documentary was filmed by Naresh Bedi and Rajesh Bedi.

The objective of the project was to see if it's feasible to breed pandas in captivity to replenish wild populations. It proved that this option is certainly possible.
