What Do Panda's Eat?
You might be interested to learn that a panda’s daily diet consists almost entirely of the leaves, stems and shoots of various bamboo species. There is little nutritional value in bamboo, so they must eat 26-83 pounds of it per day to meet their energy needs. Pandas are a member of the bear family, and possess the digestive system of a carnivore, although they have evolved to depend almost entirely on bamboo.
Pandas play a crucial role in China's bamboo forests by spreading seeds and helping the vegetation to grow. The panda’s habitat is also important for the livelihoods of local communities, who use it for food, income, fuel for cooking and heating, and medicine.
Pandas themselves are also economically and culturally valuable. They are the national symbol of China and generate significant economic benefits for local communities through ecotourism and other activities.
Where Do Panda's Live?
Most of the remaining wild pandas live in the Minshan and Qinling mountains. The Chinese government, in partnership with WWF (World Wide Fund For Nature) has also developed bamboo corridors to link isolated pockets of forest, allowing the pandas within them to move to new areas, find more food and meet more potential breeding mates.
After a significant increase in recent years, China now boasts a network of 67 panda reserves, which safeguard more than 66% of the giant pandas in the wild and almost 54% of their existing habitat.
