As the rarest member of the bear family, the giant panda is at risk, with just over 1,800 pandas left in the wild. These bears, with their distinct black-and-white coat, can grow up to 330 pounds from munching on their favorite food – bamboo. Although they’re heavy, giant pandas are surprisingly phenomenal tree climbers.
This peaceful creature has a special significance for WWF as the official mascot and logo since our founding in 1961. Some examples of our efforts to help the giant panda include: increasing the areas of panda habitat under legal protection, creating green corridors to link isolated pandas, and protecting them against poaching, illegal logging, and encroachment.
