The giant panda is the rarest member of the bear family and among the world's most threatened animals. They live mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China. There are estimated to be only around 1,600 individuals remaining in the wild, while 980 pandas are under protection in reserves.

WWF has been working closely with the Chinese government in the Qinling and Minshan Mountains and have achieved great success. Community development projects are helping people sustainably coexist with pandas, and some threats to panda survival such as poaching and illegal logging have been significantly reduced. Panda habitats are also increasing with the development of new reserves and green corridors.
