It's shocking to think that there are only about 1600 giant pandas remaining in the wild. Today they can only be found in the forest areas high in the mountains of south-western China.
If pandas are unable to roam freely through the forest to find mating partners - and females are only in season for two or three days each spring - the chances of breeding are even more limited.

How you can make a real difference
WWF was the first international conservation organisation to work in China - and has been instrumental in implementing a very successful panda project since 1980 which has led to the creation of over 60 protected nature reserves where the panda can safely roam.
We still need to do much more, and last year's tragic earthquake makes the need ever more pressing. We are now working with the Chinese government on a reconstruction plan which will:
- help restore damaged nature reserves and field stations
- restore panda monitoring and patrolling routes
- help local communities to recover from the earthquake
- promote green reconstruction in local communities
- Your support will also help fund other essential WWF conservation work around the world.
Last minute gift?
