Have you ever wondered why the giant panda bear is so highly endangered in the wild?
The most recognisable panda bear is native to the south of China. In his native mountain ranges of central China, the giant panda eats mostly bamboo (99% of his natural diet). But due to the population growth in China, the panda’s habitat has been increasingly developed by people, causing food shortages. Only about 1,500 giant pandas remain in the wild. The giant panda is the icon of the World Wide Fund for Nature because he is so highly endangered in the wild.
