They have a black and white coat of fur that they are well known for. They also have black circles around their black eyes. They can g

As of the 2014 census, there are currently 1,864 pandas living in the wild. The reasons? Hunting, Deforestation, and habitat loss. But let's not get too ahead of ourselves her and start with the basics of Giant Pandas, shall we?

row to be up to 5 feet and be up to 300 pounds. That's way larger than their distant relative, the Red Panda, which can only grow to be up to 20 to 26 inches and be 12 to 20 pounds. So, with that said, let's talk about their habitat next.

In the wild Giant Pandas live in the remote regions of Central China in Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces. This is where there are wet bamboo forests that the pandas can eat bamboo from there. Giant Pandas make their homes, or dens to be more specific, from hollow logs or stumps from conifer trees in the forest. Giant pandas are loners as well, so they don't really like being around other pandas. Next, let's talk about their diet.

They mainly subsist on bamboo as their main part of their diet. But they also eat other plants and, surprisingly, meat. They also eat rodents, fish, insects, and birds. Their stomachs are ideal for digesting bamboo. One reason they eat so much is that bamboo is low in nutrients. Next, let's talk about the reasons why they are endangered.

 

One reason they are endangered is because of hunting for their fur, which is making the decrease in numbers, which in return is decreasing their animal population. Another reason they are endangered is forest destruction because it reduces pandas access to bamboo, which is needed for their diet to work. Another reason they are endangered is habitat loss. Roads, houses, and railroads are isolating pandas which are preventing them from mating. Now we will talk about what we are doing to protect them.

Poaching Giant Pandas for their fur has become illegal thanks to strict laws that ban poaching of Giant Pandas. These laws have also raised greater public awareness about Giant Pandas and why they need to be protected. We have also created sanctuaries for these precious animals. The WWF is also creating green corridors to link isolated pandas and continuing to research and monitor the Giant Pandas.

Now, some people may think that the Giant Panda is not important. But, in reality, it IS important in our lives. It gives us amazing sights at zoos and amazing animals to help protect.

In conclusion, Giant pandas are important because they are endangered, they are great for researching, and they are overall interesting.This was conveyed in this essay by explaining their diet, habitat, looks, why they are endangered, and how we are helping to protect them. So the next time you go to a zoo, head to the Giant Pandas exhibit!
