!Save Pandas Wael Osman.Grade IV A
Panda’s Features They have: - a large head -small shaped pupils -sensitive nose and ears -strong teeth for chewing bamboo - black and white markings over their thick layer of fur - rounded body and a short tail
Panda’s Habitat They are found in China’s high mountains. Only about 2000 live in the wild and another 200 live in zoos or sanctuaries. The name PANDA comes from the language of Nepal,a country near China,which means “Bamboo Eater”
Panda’s Life They are mammals, giving birth to live young panda cubs. A female panda begins having cubs when she is five or six years old and then she gives birth to only one or two cubs every few years. She usually raises only one cub and ignores the other which then dies of neglect
Baby’s Panda At birth, new born panda cubs are tiny, blind and completely dependent on their mother’s care A baby panda can not walk until he is four month old
Panda’s Life Span Pandas can live for about 20 years in the wild and for 30 years in captivity. The biggest panda is 1.5 m long and weighs 100kg
Panda’s Diet Like other bears, pandas can eat meat, but their diet is mostly vegetarian. Their favorite meal is bamboo, a woody plant with thin shoots and green leaves. Bamboo is not very nutritious They should eat for 10 to 16 hrs a day to stay strong and healthy
Why are pandas’ lives in danger? The biggest threat to pandas is the destruction of their forest homes. China’s population is growing fast, and bamboo forest are being cleared for wood, farmland and houses. They are also in danger from hunters who want to sell their expensive fur.
Why are pandas’ lives in danger? They don’t have enough space to find food,meet a mate and escape from danger.
Hello! I am coming up here today to tell you people that you should change your ways. We pandas are decreasing in number because we are being hunted for fun,for our fur, and because you humans are destroying our habitats to build new houses and for your industry to flourish.
You should protect and save us as well as all other endangered species because the whole ecosystem will be affected and with time many species will be extinct.
YOUR ACTIONS AND BEHAVIORS MAKE ME CRY.I CHALLENGE YOU CARING PEOPLE TO START TAKING IMMEDIATE ACTION TO SAVE OUR LIVES !!
Some Good News! A pretty serious effort to breed giant pandas has been going on for some time in China, the US, Japan, Mexico and Germany. Many zoos now have panda breeding programs where scientists are studying how to help pandas survive in the wild.
Some Good News! Concerned people around the world are working hard to keep giant pandas alive. The authorities in China have imposed “death penalty” punishment for any hunter caught in an attempt to kill any panda.
