Why are pandas endangered ?

Pandas are one of the most beloved animals on the planet, thanks to their charming appearance. These animals live in the regions of Southwest China. This area passes along the eastern part of the plateau of the Tibetan mountains. These regions are chosen not in vain, because they are abundant in bamboo.

Unfortunately, the number of pandas has been decreasing lately, and at a very high rate. These harmless, friendly animals were put on the list of endangered species in 1984.

Despite efforts to protect pandas, the number of these animals is steadily declining. To date, only about seven hundred to a thousand pandas live in their natural habitat, while some of them are in zoos in different parts of the world.

The disappeared species is one that is in immediate danger of extinction. Such species of plants and animals are declared endangered by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). Different organisms fall into this list for a variety of reasons. In particular, let’s try to understand why pandas are endangered and listed as endangered species.
