Officials say numbers in the wild have now reached 1800.

China has finally removed Giant Pandas from its 'endangered species' list.

The International Union for Conservation had reclassified pandas in 2016, but China disputed that until now.

Officials say numbers in the wild have now reached 1800, thanks to better living conditions and expanded habitats.

The news is being praised on social media as 'proof' conservation efforts work.
