I'm sorry, world, but pandas were never meant to be. We are better off using the money to support easier to care for and more crucial animals. Nobody ever saved an ecosystem based on the "cute-o-meter."
Although China may see them as a national symbol, I think they are better off using that money to either bring people out of poverty in said country or use the money to save other, cheaper species.
I'm so sorry, panda...
When I was a child growing up in China one day I went exploring with my family. Unfortunately, we ran into a family of Pandas. They are said to be herbivores yet they devoured my parents like they were pros. I barely escaped with my life: so when people say 'save the pandas'. I say F*** YOU!!!!!!!
Giant pandas are a evolutionary dead end. They are lazy bears that are carnivorous but eat bamboo because its nearby. This makes them easy to kill. They are easily hunted by more fierce predators and their digestive system cannot handle bamboo because it is not adapted to it. The pandas cost millions to keep safe in zoos and would never survive in the wild. The only reason they are kept alive is that they are cute. The giant panda would be better off dead!
Everything should be done to protect giant pandas from extinction. There are so many creatures around the world that have already faced extinction and giant pandas are soon to face that list. They are a national symbol in china and wwf is in fact holding a logo that represents the panda.
Some people say that they should be killed but they shouldn't be killed they are cute and they are aborible. They live are endagered and they live in china. I just want to say they should not be killed. And if they do go extincet i will be sad and angery.
The latest estimate shows that their have been around 1,864 Giant Pandas killed in the last year. Also according to the LUCN says that their are only around 2060 Giant Pandas left in the wild world. They are going extended because they are facing habitat distraction . They are also just being killed for their fur.
It is our fault that the pandas are even in this situation today. The loss of their habitat and low reproduction rate has left the pandas with decreasing population numbers. There are only 1,600 left in the wild and if they become extinct the entire ecosystem of the bamboo forest will be unbalanced. Humans should do everything they can to help not just the pandas but also other endangered animals. The earth is a beautiful place but we, humans, must learn to share it to make it even more beautiful
F*** THE HUMANS sssssss sssssssssssss s s s s s s s s ss s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s s
Giant pandas are one of the wolds most loved, the are fluffy and cute. China has already lost a species of animal. Instead of letting the face extinction why not make a bamboo field some where that is not as polluted and get them to eat a different kind of food! I see it as if you want pandas to die off because they are meant to eat meat but they don't so it slows them down. But some people are vegetarians but people don't want to kill them. I think the world would regret it if we let the pandas go extincted.
The giant panda is one of these species threatened to be wiped off the planet. Ironically, it is also one better known and loved species in the world and one of the strongest symbols of nature conservation.
That is one of the main reasons why they are so important: by mobilizing people to save the panda, we are actually helping preserve the rich biodiversity - plants, landscapes, other animals - that need to be there in order for the pandas to survive.
The region where pandas live, in the Yangtze Basin and its magnificent forests are home to a stunning array of wildlife such as dwarf blue sheep and beautiful multi-coloured pheasants; as well as a number of other endangered species, including the golden monkey, takin and crested ibis.
They also play a crucial role in the bamboo forests where they roam by spreading seeds and facilitating greater growth of the vegetation.
The panda’s habitat is also home for millions of people. This is the geographic and economic heart of China. By making this area more sustainable, we are also helping to increase the quality of life of local populations.
They also bring huge economic benefits to local communities through ecotourism and other activities. Besides all these natural values, pandas have are a very important cultural icon for Chinese people.
Giant pandas are bears that have gone herbivorous that only survive on bamboos. This alone makes them vulnerable to extinction. Until recently, they have been impossible to breed in captivity and are very expensive to maintain. The money spent to save pandas should be spent on buying up rainforests to benefit greater number of species.
Giant Panda Bears and other animals that are facing the danger of being extinct should have our help. We are probably the leading factor in many extinctions and we should do what we can as humans to try and prevent this from going on further. Increasing our knowledge and helping them is the least we can do.
