Two giant pandas that have been living in the United States are being sent home to China.

Bai Yun, the 27-year-old female giant panda, and her son, six-year-old Xiao Liwu, have been attractions at the San Diego Zoo for decades.

The pandas had been on loan to the zoo as part of a long-term conservation agreement that is coming to an end.

The Pandas will be sent home in late April.

The species was threatened with extinction when the zoo teamed up with China 25 years ago as part of a conservation program.

Today, pandas are listed as a vulnerable species.

That means that while their survival is still threatened, conservation efforts have helped reduce their danger of extinction.
