What we learn from the reservation work of giant panda

There is no doubt that giant panda protection is a successful example of species conservation projects over the past few decades. Since 1980, under the joint efforts of habitat protection and artificial breeding, the number of wild giant pandas has risen from less than 1000 to about 2000, and the number in captivity has been over 450, gradually out of the endangered situation. Taking into account pandas’ strict living habits and fragile reproductive capacity, the results of the protection of pandas is very hard to come by. Standing in the second decade of the 21st century, when we looked back for decades of panda conservation work, there were many details and experiences and worthy of our tastes.

Now, we are having more pandas than anytime in the past 50 years

When it comes to the giant panda protection, what will be firstly mentioned is China’s national protection system. Without a strong government and the co-operation among the whole society, it is impossible to get the success of giant panda protection. I think this view is reasonable but not exact. Giant panda protection is inseparable from the national system, but we must also see that every animal protection under the national system can achieve gratifying results. In the 1980S, apart from the giant pandas, another kind of endangered species of concern was the baiji, whichg is called “giant panda in the water”. The baiji protection work lasted for more than 20 years, including habitat protection and capitation. Despite really much efforts were made, the baiji’s reservation work ultimately ended in failure, and the baiji which have lived in the Yangtze River in the past millions of years is still inevitably to go to extinction. It can be seen that the nationwide system is necessary for animal protection. Animal protection is a multi-faceted action involving the whole society. Only the best of both countries can achieve the best results. On the other hand, we must also see that the nationwide system is not always Work. If the protection really achieves the effect, we also need some other things.

And the missing part of the success is about social concern. The concern comes not only from the country, but also from the whole world. Panda, because of its unique and lovely appearance and mild temperament, is easy to get people’s favorite. This lets panda a kind of really well-known animal and many people care about their living situation and like to do something for them. Panda’s reservation work gets the world’s attention and support. In this context, the panda protection work is often able to get more abundant resources, by more affirmation. This is for the panda protection work, in fact, formed a huge booster role.

Greater concern, greater resource of reservation work

n addition, the giant panda because of its unique habits, its habitat environment also lives such as red panda, golden monkey, takin, clouded leopard and other rare animals, which makes the habitat protection of giant pandas not only make the giant panda, but also makes the whole ecology Chain of all the benefits of the benefit The giant panda is regarded as the “flagship species” of the whole ecosystem. In turn, for this reason, we will also increase the investment in the protection of giant pandas, because the protection of the panda, which means protecting more lives.

The achievements of giant panda reservation has its inevitability, but also its particularity. To grasp its particularity, inherit its inevitability, we can in the future of other animals in the conservation work to be successful.
