China still needs more protection to improve the living environment of the wild panda Reference News Network reported on September 11th, the British media said the good news about animal protection is always popular. It would be even better if it had something to do with the most attractive pandas. In September 5th, the International Union for conservation of nature, serves as a link between the government and non-governmental organizations of the environmental group announced that the giant panda has been from the "endangered" (means the animal species in the wild is likely to face extinction) into a vulnerable species (i.e. the species at risk of extinction). "Everyone should raise a glass of wine to celebrate," said the director general of WWF china." In the past 30 years, China has made great efforts to promote the breeding of giant pandas, according to an article published by the economist in September 10th. But most of the efforts have been carried out in captive giant pandas, which are related to the survival of wild pandas. In 2013, the number of pandas in the wild has risen from 1114 in 1988 to just over 1864, according to a government survey. This is five times the number of giant pandas in captivity. The article said that the increase in the number of giant pandas in the wild reflects the living environment of the giant panda, a dense bamboo forest in southwest china. After a period of time after deforestation, China now has 67 panda reserves, covering about half of the giant panda activity range. 2/3 of the wild pandas live in these reserves. Needless to say, the panda’s ability to earn money (foreign zoos hire a pair of giant pandas to pay $1 million a year) to allow the opportunity to set up these animal protection areas become smaller. However, in the protection of giant pandas for decades, the government can not help but. As a result, China now has two species of giant pandas, the giant panda and the giant panda, which is more frequently seen in front of the camera. Although the number is less, but the captive giant panda breeding ability is stronger. From 2003 to 2013, the number of wild pandas increased by 268, an increase of about 17%. The number of giant pandas in captivity has more than doubled from 164 to more than 375. Pandas are known for their poor breeding ability. But the problem is that at least a large part of the problem of breeding in captivity is due to human ignorance. As people’s understanding of the physiological characteristics and behavior of giant pandas, their fertility rates have increased. The article said, unfortunately, this is not helpful for wild pandas. The panda captive breeding program goal is to put them into the wild. Pandas born in captivity have been trained for two years to learn how to find food and stay alert to humans. But after years of efforts, only 5 captive pandas were released into the wild. Two of them have died. This winter and the two pandas will be released into the wild. In this context, it was expected China government may be on the IUCN’s decision was dance for joy. But it keeps the restraint. State Forestry Administration (responsible for the supervision of giant panda habitat 8)相关的主题文章:
