4 Why is this species important? Panda habitat is found at the top of the Yangtze Basin, an ecoregion shared by both pandas and millions of people whose ancestors have utilized the region's natural resources for millennia. The survival of the panda and the protection of its habitat will ensure that people living in the region continue to reap ecosystem benefits for many generations.

6 Background The giant panda is universally loved, and of course has a special significance for WWF as it has been the organization's symbol since it was formed in Today, the giant panda's future remains uncertain. This peaceful, bamboo- eating member of the bear family faces a number of threats. Its forest habitat, in the mountainous areas of southwest China, is fragmented and giant panda populations are small and isolated from each other. Meanwhile, poaching remains an ever-present threat.

7 PANDA HABITAT MAP WWF is trying to re-link these fragmented blocks of panda habitat with forested corridors so that pandas can move across these "islands" and find new food sources and mates when needed.

8 Giant pandas Giant pandas Giant pandas are about 5 feet long from nose to rump, with a 4-6 inch tail. A large adult panda can weigh about pounds, with males 10 percent larger and 20 percent heavier than females. Giant pandas are about 5 feet long from nose to rump, with a 4-6 inch tail.

11 Whales, dolphins and porpoises Whales, dolphins and porpoises are succumbing to new and ever- increasing dangers. Collisions with ships and entanglement in fishing gear threaten the North Atlantic right whale with extinction, while the Critically Endangered Western North Pacific gray whale is at serious risk because of intensive oil and gas development in its feeding grounds.

It's illegal, but it still happens: commercial whaling Despite a moratorium on commercial whaling and the declaration of virtually the whole of the Southern Ocean as a whale sanctuary, each year over 1,000 whales are killed for the commercial market.

18 Wildlife : In the Path of the Tiger Wildlife : In the Path of the Tiger The tiger, largest of all cats, is one of the most charismatic and evocative species on Earth; it is also one of the most threatened. Less than 4,000 remain in the wild, most in isolated pockets spread across increasingly fragmented forests stretching from India to south-eastern China and from the Russian Far East to Sumatra, Indonesia The tiger, largest of all cats, is one of the most charismatic and evocative species on Earth; it is also one of the most threatened.

27 Why is this species important? With 20-25,000 polar bears living in the wild, the species is not currently endangered, but its future is far from certain. With 20-25,000 polar bears living in the wild, the species is not currently endangered, but its future is far from certain. Why is this species important? Of all of the wildlife species in the Arctic, the polar bear is perhaps the most fitting icon for this ecoregion. Its amazing adaptations to life in the harsh Arctic environment and dependence on sea ice make them so impressive, and yet so vulnerable. Why is this species important?
