Print this Giant Panda Poster out and display it in your classroom when studying endangered animals.
Where: Native to central-western and south-western China.
How many: Between 1,500 and 3,000 giant pandas still live in the wild. (As of 2006)
Why: The main reason giant pandas have become an endangered species is because of habitat loss. As China’s population continues to grow, the pandas’ natural habitat is being taken over. This continued habitat destruction pushes the giant pandas into smaller areas where there is often less bamboo for them to eat.
