Save the Pandas
Giant pandas first became endangered in 1990 due to excessive poaching in the 80s and deforestation. Since bamboo is their main food source, the greatest threat to Giant pandas is habitat loss due to human activities. Deforestation has depleted their bamboo food source, and farmland expansion causes fragmentation of panda habitats which isolates them from potential partners.
Since humans are the ones that have driven pandas to the edge of extinction, shouldn't we be the ones who should take the responsibility of saving them?
These gentle bears play a crucial role in maintaining China’s bamboo forests by spreading seeds and helping the vegetation to grow. And their presence also helps protect the prosperity of other species that live in China’s bamboo forests, such as Dwarf Blue Sheep.
To play our part in helping the Giant Panda population recover, HOPE is collaborating with Pandas International. They are committed to ensuring the preservation and propagation of the Giant panda. When you buy a reka wear panda beanie, money will be donated to pandas International to support their conservation activities
Together we can change tomorrow, but with HOPE we can start today! Thank you for being a part of our beautiful dream!
