Giant pandas are many things: cuddly and cute, one of the most recognized species on Earth, but also a political pawn in China’s “panda diplomacy.” In addition, they represent the ongoing battle to save worldwide species diversity and their supporting habitats. Despite nearly five decades of research and conservation efforts, giant pandas are still dangerously close to extinction.
Join us as Dr. Sarah Bexell looks at the history of giant panda conservation, current conservation efforts, and plans for their future.
