The Sichuan Earthquake and Pandas
Pandas International has a bunch of useful information regarding Wolong, the earthquake, and pictures of places around the area.
This AP Flash applet finally let me know Wolong’s relation to Chengdu (even on most maps, I couldn’t find it).
There are also a bunch of visual updates on the Pandas International webpage. If you look at the links near the bottom, you can see pictures of the devastation, many of which I hadn’t seen on other websites. On other websites, this CNN article shows a newly married couple that was in a church courtyard when the earthquake struck.
No pictures, but the Guardian has an amazing story of the only school in the earthquake zone that did not collapse. The fight against shoddy construction by the project manager 10 years ago paid off. Too bad there aren’t more project managers that care that much about proper construction techniques and materials.
