It seems that China managed to save the giant pandas from extinction. The number of these animals grew 17% in the last ten years, and they have escaped the list of endangered species. The International Union for Conservation of Nature announced that pandas aren’t any more at risk of disappearing, and we, at Wisdom.ninja, were very happy with this report.
There are times large amounts of pandas inhabit the forests of southern and eastern China. However, because of climate change, agriculture development, deforestation, the population of these animals began to diminish.
But Chinese ecologists have developed a plan to save these cute bears. And between 2004 and 2014, the number of adult animals increased from 1596 to 1864. China has also increased the amount of protected parks around the country. Now China has 67 of them.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature reclassified the status of pandas, from ‘endangered’ to ‘vulnerable’. Which means that, at least for now, they are safe, but they still require our care.
