Oh how I love these beautiful black and white panda bears! They are so adorably cute, but can be just as dangerous as any other bear. Pandas can weigh up to 250 pounds. The beautiful pandas are listed as endangered in the World Conservation Union's Red List of threatened species. There are about 1,600 left in the wild. More than 300 live in zoos, mostly in China.
The World Wildlife Fund is the primary international conservation organization protecting pandas and their habitat. To make a donation in support of WWF's global conservation efforts, visit: http://gifts.worldwildlife.org/gift-center/gifts/Species-Adoptions/Panda.aspxI wanted to share some amazing photographs and artwork of these beautiful animals. I'm sure you'll agree, that they are one of a kind animals that we really need to protect.
