Once the majestic symbol of China, the giant panda has now become one of the world’s most threatened animals. As an animal that relies on bamboo for 99% of its diet, the clearing of bamboo forests for farming in the mountains of western China is driving the giant panda toward extinction.
With a population of over one billion people to provide land and resources for, the Chinese government has dragged its feet on creating a solution to the pressing issue of habitat loss. The giant panda is not only a treasure for China, but one for the world; now is the time to commit to creating nature reserves that will permanently protect giant panda habitats and save them from extinction.
