Pandas in China

The giant panda is native to the mountainous temperate forests of southwest China. Due to farming and deforestation, the giant panda has been driven out of the lowland areas where it once lived. The most damaging result of development has been that it has divided the panda’s habitat into little islands of forest. Today, many pandas are isolated in these small sections of forest, because they will cross into areas where humans live.

China created protected areas and breeding centers for protecting the giant panda.
The country has 37 official panda protecting areas.

All captive giant pandas are owned by 6 panda centres:
Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding
China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda
Beijing Zoo
Chongqing Zoo
Fuzhou Panda World
Shanxi Rare Wildlife Save & Research Center Louguantai
