Transcript of Panda

The Giant Panda
Panda
a large bear-like mammal with characteristic black-and-white markings, native to certain mountain forests in China. It feeds almost entirely on bamboo and has become increasingly rare.
Status
Despite their relative lack of natural predators, pandas are classified as an endangered species. Unsurprisingly humans are the main culprits. Only some 1600 pandas exist today.

Habitat
Habitat
Distribution
Why is it endangered?
Pandas live mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of south western China, mostly distributed between the Qinling and Minshan Mountains.

What are we doing?
Conservation education and public awareness activities
International breeding programs in zoos around the world
Creation of 14 new panda reserves in China (total: 26)
Forest links, between the isolated populations which increase exchange of genetic material
Continued research and artificial insemination of giant pandas
Mass tourism
Mining operations and large scale forest destructive reduces access to food
Hunting: Poaching for fur and accidental killings
Railway and roads isolates panda populations and prevent mating
Natural causes: Climates change and natural disasters (such as May 2009 Sichuan Earthquake)
Expanding human populations and development means pandas are restricted to only 20 or so isolated patches of mountain forests left.
