Kung Fu Panda is coming to the rescue. The film's production team from Dreamworks Animation recently visited the Sichuan Province of China to observe and sketch the animals that inspired Jack Black's character, Po. The team also partnered with Conservation International to provide a $1 million donation to aid in the protection of the endangered species. The money comes at a good time, since Chinese officials predict that more wild pandas will require assistance this winter. The region's devastating May earthquake affected 80 percent of the bears' habitat.
