More about Pandas

The giant panda is the rarest member of the bear family and among the world's most threatened animals.

Location: Southwest China - to the east of the Tibetan plateau

Habitat: Temperate Broadleaf and Mixed Forests

Wild population: Less than 1,600 mature in the wild

The threat to pandas

  • Conversion of forests to agricultural areas
  • Medicinal herb collection
  • Bamboo harvesting
  • Habitat fragmentation
  • Poaching
  • Large-scale development activities such as road construction, hydropower development, and mining

How your adoption can help:

  • £60 (or £5 a month) could buy a household an energy-saving stove, which will cut its annual firewood use by half. Thereby saving vital giant panda habitat.
  • £120 (or £10 a month) could buy protective waterproof footwear for a team of five rangers to continue patroling the Minshan Mountains.

The giant pandas of the Qinling mountains

(pronounced chin-ling)

A group of around 43, including 10 cubs. They’re located in the Taibai county of Shaanxi province, central China. These lucky bears have the rare distinction of inhabiting two neighbouring nature reserves – Huangbaiyuan and Niuweihe. They also have the luxury of two nearby panda corridors – areas that join up different bits of habitat, which make it easier for them to feed and breed.

Lucy Vickerstaff, Snow leopard adopter
I adopted a snow leopard because they're such beautiful creatures and it's such a shame that they're endangered. I would love to adopt more animals in the future and I'm proud to say I'm part of the WWF community. Lucy Vickerstaff

Nina Castelle, Tiger adopter
I was always interested in animals, since I was a little girl and I wanted to be a vet or working with WWF. This year I came to the UK to work and when I got my first payment I went to the webpage and adopted a tiger. I hope someday I can help with more; you do a really great job. Thank you. Nina Castelle
