Two giant pandas have been released back into the wild after three years of survival training.

They were born and raised in China's Panda Protection and Research Centre but keepers wanted them to return to their natural habitat.

The training included learning how to hide from predators, search for food and adapt to the harsh weather conditions. These are all basic skills needed to survive in the wild.

The best time to release pandas is late autumn or early winter which is the time when wild young pandas would usually leave their mothers.

Giant pandas are classed as 'vulnerable' with only around 1,800 of the animals left in the world.
