The giant panda could be reduced by "hunger" and disappear within a few decades because of climate change, to warn is a group of researchers from the University of Michigan, the authors of a study recently published in Nature Climate Change.
Bamboo plants on which depends the survival of these Ursids, in fact, continue to suffer from the consequences of decades of human pressure on the environment: for this reason, the habitat of giant pandas is increasingly degraded and impoverished.
The researchers carried out a survey of giant pandas who dwell on the Qinling Mountains in Shaanxi Province. The hills are home to about 275 pandas in the wild, 17% of the total of the entire wild population that remains alive.
Still, the researchers point out, in spite of the pessimistic forecasts from the models that meet the historical data with the projections of the future, the solution would be: panda would be enough to allow access to a larger area in which to search for food without being in danger, not only Qinling mountains but in all the regions where dwell the Ursids.

"Please save the forests and bamboo lands that exist. Mankind is already trying to replant what mankind has cut down. This is not like China -- to cut down her beloved forests and bamboo lands.
Bamboo would be grown in other places (yards, city plots) -- and still keep the connnected forests and bamboo lands for the wilderness, the ecosystems, and the pandas intact. This would be wonderful !"

What's especially disturbing about this is that ANY ZOO which shows/breeds pandas MUST pay the Chinese government ONE MILLION US DOLLARS PER YEAR, PER PANDA!

This money is supposed to go toward panda preservation in China.

noted and signed. I don't know how many times this issue has come up The WWF in two consecutive reports, each 10 years apart, noted that the continued dissection of land keeps giant pandas from getting to their feeding grounds and mates. Thus the gene pool is shrinking, the death knell for any species. So the government vowed to put a stop to that. Hmm, earthquaked don't help. This animal is on the decline due to man. There are other arguments, but to me that's what the evidence shows. China is making a hefty profit by renting giant pandas to various countries. The young have to return to China. D.C's Tai Shan and many of the guys we watched being born and raised were carted off to the homeland for breeding usually in a region that is notorious for earthquakes. So when a petition or anything comes along I think of precious Tai Shan
