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.
