+ a great succes in the Panda Conservation :
In 2004, a new survey counted 1,600 pandas - 40% more than were thought to exist in the 1980s !
Panda habitat is increasing with the development of new reserves and green corridors. Some threats to panda survival such as poaching and illegal logging have been significantly reduced and Community development projects to help people sustainably coexist with pandas have been very positive.

The survival of the giant panda, gives rise to hope that the panda will not be lost and will continue to exist in the wild for generations to come.
