Pandas wild status has been upgraded to vulnerable from endangered

There are now roughly 1800 wild pandas and so their status has been moved to vulnerable!

The first wild panda twins to be photographed. While twins are not uncommon in captivity, the mother usually needs help to raise both. In the wild this does not exist

This shows what is possible, even in countries with huge populations. It should be noted, though, that there are other threats coming. It is thought that as much as 35% of the bamboo forests will be lost over the next 80 years, due to die of because of higher temperatures.

While the Panda is no longer endangered, and there are many other species that need out attention, we must not forget it as its future while more clear is still fraught with risks
