  • One of the rarest bears in the world, the panda is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN’s Red List
  • According to the latest survey conducted by the government of China, the number of pandas in the wild has slowly increased over the past 10 years, from 1,600 to 1,864.
  • Pandas play a crucial role in China’s bamboo forests – they spread seeds and allow the vegetation to grow, helping to add to the wealth of species that live in the forests.
  • By protecting pandas we also safeguard the broader environment, which so many people and animals rely on.
  • Pandas also used to live in southern and eastern China, but due to the expanding human population and increasing development, the species is now restricted to around 20 patches of bamboo forest in six mountain ranges, located in China’s Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces.
