The Giant Panda in Europe

In honor of Earth Day!

The Giant Panda is known as a symbol for  the endangered animals.
The Panda eats a diet that consists of different parts of a number of species of the bamboo plant.

The Panda’s habitat has almost completely disappeared
By use of  huge amounts of  bamboo  by the human population  a lot of parts of bamboo forests in China have been cleared and range is getting smaller.

It is suspected that there are approximately 1,800 pandas left in the wild.

To avoid extinction, the giant Panda is kept in zoos with the aim to produce offspring.
In Europe there are only five zoos where you can see the  Panda .
We have put together a special list for you.

1. Tian Tian in the U.K. at Edinburgh Zoo (Edinburgh)
2. Yang Yang, Hui Long , Fu Long and baby Fu Hu in Austria at Zoo Schönbrunn (Vienna)
3. Huan Huan & Yuan Zi in France at Parc de Beauval (Saint-Agnan)
4. Xing Bao in Spain at Madrid Zoo (Madrid)
5. Hao Hao & Xing Hui in Belgium at Zoo Pairi Daiza (Brugelette)
