Can the Giant Panda be Saved?

Habitat loss and slow natural reproduction have landed pandas on the endangered list. At China’s Wolong Nature Reserve, scientists oversee an innovative captive breeding program that uses artificial insemination to attempt to increase panda populations faster. However, a major earthquake in 2008 destroyed the panda’s habitat and cut off their food, threatening the breeding season. Wild Chronicles reports from China on the state of the panda.

I agree with Carolyn. There are already too many highways in the world. Habitat must be protected.

I hope the Chinese government realizes what a rare and precious resource these Pandas are and help protect the their habitat and re-evaluate their government's environmental programs for the benefit of the Panda's and all of the people of China!

Earthquake didn't help things but I think it has more to do with building highways right through the middle of panda habitat. instead of bringing the two (truly beautiful and precious) pandas to Scotland and all patting themselves on the back for some pretentious political move, the Chinese should be saving the habitat first. ,
