    hosting a giant panda

    35.The cost of hosting a giant panda at each zoo can exceed two and a half million U.S dollars a year, and that's without babies...

    Does this "hosting" mean "providing accomodation to someone"?

    Yes. The Chinese government charges a fee for loans of Giant Pandas to zoos.
