World's oldest captive panda Basi dies in China

The world's oldest captive giant panda has died, according to her keepers in Fuzhou, south-east China.

At 37, Basi had outlived all her panda peers, reaching the equivalent of more than a hundred in human years.

Giant pandas are regarded as symbols of China and are highly protected. But they are no longer endangered, following decades of conservation work.

Named after a valley she was rescued from, Basi had lived at the panda facility since she was four or five. bbc.com
