Captive
A giant panda used for breeding sits alone in a facility. Captive breeding of endangered species can play an important role in repopulating wild habitats, but it can also be a convenient label to hide behind, much like “green,” “renewable," or “sustainable.” In this case, though there was no doubt that the staff cared deeply for their wards, the feeling nevertheless was that the pandas were economic assets.

حيوان باندا عملاق مُحتجز في إطار برنامج "التكاثر" يجلس وحيداً في المنشأة. يشمل برنامج التكاثر الحيوانات المهدّدة بالانقراض وقد يؤدّي دوراً بارزاً في إعادة حياة الموائل البرية، لكن قد يكون واجهة لأعمال ونوايا خفية، تماماً مثل مبادرات الحفاظ على البيئة بعنوان "الأخضر" أو "المتجدّد" أو "المستدام". في هذه الحالة، على الرغم من أنّ الموظّفين يهتمّون بأقسامهم من دون أدنى شكّ، إلا أن حيوانات الباندا بدت وكأنّها أصول اقتصادية. مقاطعة شنشي (الصين)
