Images of China - Giant panda

The Giant Panda Breeding and Research Centre near Chengdu

'Da xiong mao', the Chinese name for the giant panda means 'great bear cat' and there are now fewer than 1000 in the wild. They are found in six small areas in China between 1200m and 3400m above sea level.

Bamboo is giant pandas' primary source of food and declining sources are leading to a decline in numbers. Giant pandas are also increasingly coming into conflict with farmers wishing to expand their agriculture into the bamboo forests.
