Giant Panda Conservation efforts don’t benefit just about one species alone as new research shows.
It was also a lot to cheer about when the IUCN officially downgraded the panda bear from Endangered to Vulnerable in 2016.
Quick intervention and combined conservation efforts within and outside China quickly rescued the giant panda (Ailuropoda Melanoleuca) from the brink of extinction.
This creature remains at the forefront of animal conservation and is a symbol of what cooperation can achieve.
Even so, to date many wonder what all the fuss about this particular animal is. They fail to realize that these efforts are not about just one animal. The giant panda is not just a cuddly-looking and cute with more viral videos than almost any other animal alive today.
