Giant Pandas

Endangered Animals need our Help

About Pandas.

The rarest member of the bear family, pandas live mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China, where they subsist almost entirely on bamboo. They must eat from 26 to 84 pounds of it every day, a formidable task for which they use their enlarged wrist bones that function as opposable thumbs.

Why are they endangered?

Giant pandas are currently classified on IUCN's Red List as an endangered species. One the main reasons that pandas have become endangered is habitat destruction. As the population in China continues to grow, pandas' habitat gets taken over by development, pushing them into smaller and less livable areas

Guaranteed we will make a difference.

What can you do to help?!?

Wildlife reserves have been set up in parts of China to make sure the pandas have a home, and care is taken to make sure they survive in the wild. Researchers continue to study how pandas breed in an effort to increase the population. You can help by donating or adopting a panda through the World Wildlife Fund - See more at:
