Red Pandas Are Endangered Species !!!!

There is less than 10,000 of these cute, and small red pandas left. The initial population of the red panda is unknown. The reasons that they are endangered is because of deforestation, because of pollution, and the spread of agriculture. They are also being hunted by poachers, and their tails serve as a good luck charm in wedding ceremonies. The red panda was first discovered in 1825.
