Everybody loves the giant panda. That was clear from the enthusiastic welcome New Yorkers gave to the two young pandas when they arrived at the Bronx Zoo in May. The lovely black-and-white pair were on loan for 6 months from China’s Beijing Zoo, and it was estimated that more than 1 million people visited them in New York before they left for a zoo in Tampa, Florida in early November.
The giant panda, unfortunately, is an endangered species. Only about 700 are left in the wild, most of them living on reserves in China’s Sichuan Province. Despite conservation efforts on the part of the Chinese government and scientists worldwide, the population continues to get smaller as human beings cut down bamboo, the panda’s main food.
Can the panda be saved ? Of course. All it needs is bamboo and peace. Every panda population should have at least 2 bamboo species available to reduce the effect of a die-off. Bamboo on low hills must be preserved or replanted. Present reserves need to be expanded and new reserves created. Poaching must be controlled. Zoos must improve captive breeding to provide more pandas for their original home.
China’s Ministry of Forestry and the World Wildlife Fund are continuing their effort of working together for the panda, guided by the spirit of their joint agreement that reads:” The giant panda is not only the precious property of the Chinese people, but also a precious natural heritage of concern to people all over the world.”
