China and the United States are making joint efforts to send a pair of giant pandas to San Francisco in 2025.

The China Wildlife Conservation Association and the US San Francisco Zoo signed a letter of intent on giant panda conservation cooperation in Beijing on Friday.

The two parties will jointly improve their ability to protect highly endangered species and biological diversity through cooperation and knowledge sharing. They also aim to enhance people's friendships through these moves.

Under the letter of intent, the two parties will get actively involved in preparation work in accordance with regulations and technical standards to make sure a pair of giant pandas will be safely transferred to San Francisco in 2025.

China and the US have started cooperative research on giant pandas' conservation, breeding, disease control and treatment from the 1990s, and have successfully bred 17 baby cubs during the period.
