Is panda conservation worth it? http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/conservation-costs-panda-ring- article-1.1897387 Is saving the panda worth it?
Discussion Questions What makes pandas so valuable? What are the benefits of saving the panda? What are the costs of saving the panda? Are panda’s worth the resources required to save them?
Watt, S. (2014, August 10). The conservation costs of panda-ring: Cuddly doesn't mean important. New York Daily News. Retrieved January 13, 2015, from http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/conservation-costs-panda-ring-article-1.1897387 “A panda’s upkeep typically costs five times that of an elephant, making the panda pricier than…most [zoo animals].” “All pandas, as a fact of international law, belong to China; they are rented, not owned. Zoos pay millions each year just for the privilege of displaying them.” “In financial terms, the gamble can work. The presence of a pair of pandas at Adelaide Zoo, Australia, is estimated to have injected more than $50 million into the local economy within their first year of residence in 2009.” “Earth is bountiful. We think that there might be as many as 8.7 million plants and animals out there. Only about 1.9 million of these have been formally described. We are discovering about 50 species a day, but more than three times that are being wiped out.” “Some of these whole species could be saved for the same price as a single panda. In many cases, buying a few pandas’ worth of land in a rainforest could rescue countless more species.” Related economic topics: scarcity trade-offs opportunity cost supply & demand Significant quotes: Citation: Ms Krejnik 1/12/15 p. 1
