Chinese conservation workers are planning to release a female panda cub into the wild, after spending two years teaching her survival skills.

Zhang Xiang, a 26-month-old cub, has been in captivity since birth, but experts in Sichuan Province now believe she is ready to be set free.

Disguises were used to allow conservationists to interact with Zhang, who says she has been afraid of humans since she was young.
