More Pandas

I just got this snippet of information of WWF:

"The measures implemented by the Chinese government, working closely with WWF, really have worked and in 2004 a new survey counted 1600 pandas, 40% more than were thought to exist in the 1980s. This is great news.

Threats to the panda's future remain however, including the loss and fragmentation of panda habitat and competing needs of pandas and local people.

But we are confident that with your continued support we can ensure a future for pandas in the wild.

Pandas are not even good at eating bamboo. The digestive tract of a panda is not up to the task. See more in the book: "The Panda's Thumb: More Reflections in Natural History" by Stephen Jay Gould.
