Panda's case (characteristics, extinction and captivity)

In the world, humans are destroying many natural areas, and most of them can not  be reparable because don not take the necessary care and, as a consequence, most animals species are disappearing.

Panda bears are really nice animals whose image has been used for stuffed animals and cartoons, but they are as beautiful as they are delicates. This fact is not a good notice for the animal’s fans.
Giant Pandas

Ailuropoda Melanoleuca is the scientific name. They are native to Central China, Sichuan, and also to Tibet, where they have their nests around 3.500 meters high.

Although, they are carnivores, they eat mostly bamboo leaves, fruit, little mamifers, fish and insects. They use to climb trees to find  food.

Their body hair allows adaptation to many kinds of climate conditions, even really cold temperatures

 Giants Panda’s extinction

This species has a really problem. It’s natality is really low and infant mortality is really high. This makes it difficult to increase the population

Many zoos are trying to increase the population of this wonderful animal taking from the mountains and saving them in designated areas.

To hunt them is punishable in China with life imprisonment in case you shoot one of them. As a result, hunting has decreased in the  last years, but frequently the pandas, fall into deer traps.

Pandas in cautivity

It  said before,many zoos are trying to take pandas for reproduction and return them to the nature with the objective of doubling the actual poblation.

In China, there are about 240 individuals bears in captivity, and most of them are kept in Sichuan, with the necessary care.

In actuality, many zoos in the world have pandas as an atraccion, and this cost a lot of money (like five times more than a elephant). As a result, the Chinese government gives subventions valued at 2.000.000 U.S. dollars per year.
