For years, pandas have been on the brink of extinction. They were even chosen as the symbol for the World Wildlife Fund. Thanks to the conservation efforts they have now been mating and that has rescued the species – for mating.
All thanks to conservation efforts (breeding in captivity, for example), Pandas are growing in number. More pandas are having babies and mating. This is a good thing because more pandas can now live a happy life in nature.
Here are a couple of facts about pandas: in 2014 there were 1864 giant pandas alive in the wild; giant panda numbers have increased from around 1000 in the late 1970s; giant panda numbers have risen by 17 percent.
Here is a question; how much money have people spent on conservations to help the pandas survive? People have spent loads of money on pandas as they are the most expensive animals in the world to keep, five times more than elephants. One thing we should all remember is to always help animals that are endangered. Because things can change!
