Adopt a Giant Panda

It is estimated that around 1,860 giant pandas remain in the wild today. Help us protect this iconic species.

The giant panda habitat was once spread throughout China, northern Vietnam and northern Myanmar. But now the giant panda is found in the wild in just six isolated mountain ranges in Gansu, Shaanxi and Sichuan Provinces in south-central China.

Panda Map

Two-thirds of all wild pandas now live in nature reserves. You may have heard the great news that giant pandas have been downlisted from the IUCN Redlist. They are no longer endangered. However, they are still threatened, so we still need your support to help protect them.




Loss of Food Supplies

In some places, grazing livestock, harvesting bamboo and collecting medicinal herbs is still a threat to pandas.

Habitat Fragmentation

Roads and railways are increasingly cutting through the forest, which isolates panda populations and prevents them from breeding.

Human Silhouette

Climate Change

Pandas that live in isolated mountains are especially vulnerable to warming - as they already have small ranges that will shrink and fragment further.



Tourism in the region is increasing and this is putting additional pressure on giant panda habitat.

How we can help

In 1980 we became the first international conservation organisation invited to work in China – and we’ve been working with the Chinese government to help protect giant pandas ever since. This includes helping to designate and set up protected areas to keep more panda habitat intact.

We also work with local communities to help them use their natural resources more sustainably, and encourage alternative livelihoods such as bee-keeping – things that don’t negatively impact on the panda’s habitat.

Your adoption and support will help us:

  • create wildlife corridors to reconnect panda habitats
  • restore habitats
  • increase the area of habitat under legal protection
  • support local communities manage forest resources sustainably
  • fund our other essential work around the world
