At Risk Animals. 12” x 12” x 1” - Due to expanding human populations and development, the species is now restricted to around 20 isolated patches of bamboo forest in six mountain ranges in China's Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces.
Most of the remaining wild pandas live in the Minshan and Qinling mountains. And it is here that WWF has focussed its giant panda conservation work, supporting the Chinese government's efforts to conserve the species.
Since habitat loss is the most serious threat to the panda, establishing new reserves and extending existing ones are crucial to its survival.
