Endangered Animals (The Panda)
Starting Off This is a baby panda just born. They start off pink then as they come a few days old they start to grow fur. Some people think its gross but we think its cute.
Habitat The Giant Panda lives in China. It live in bamboo forests in Southern China in the mountains. Here is a picture of a map of China. The red bit is where the Pandas Live. The Giant Panda spends most of its life living in a particular forest called Bamboo Forests. This is a picture for what the forests look like.
Diet and Weight The Giant Panda eats half of the day it eats for 12 hours. It takes a Giant Panda to eat 28 pounds and 12.5 kilograms of Bamboo. To make the daily diet for the Giant Pandas needs. Sometimes pandas might eat birds or rodents instead of bamboo. Pandas climb high about 13,000 feet and 3,962 metres to feed on leaves and other kinds of food in the summer season. The Giant Panda weighs about 350 pounds (160 kilograms) and grows up to 20-24 inchers long.
Reasons The Giant Panda is endangered because poachers steal pandas and baby pandas to kill them for their skin. In china Pandas skin is quite valuable there. Farmers in China also cut down bamboo forests to survive. The bamboo is like a crop but a different kind to ours. Because the bamboo forests are getting cut down the pandas are having trouble of where to live and what to eat. Poachers also kill other animals like bull, cows, dear and farm animals as well.
Helping People in China are trying to stop poachers from killing the Giant Pandas by having Special Camp for them. What happens is that the people working in the camps go out and set harmless traps for them. The traps are like a cage. Once the bear is in the cage and trapped the people shot out a needle kind of thing out of a stick. Once the needle hits the panda the needle has a kind of medicine that’s puts the panda into a little sleep and calms it down. Once the panda is down the people go into the cage and put a collar around the pandas neck. This collar tracks the panda where ever it goes.
