The giant panda has been on the endangered species list for decades. That’s not a fun list to be on!
Thankfully, The International Union for Conservation of Nature released a report on Sunday stating that the panda is no longer considered “endangered” but is now classified as “vulnerable”…
That’s great news. This means that all the efforts conservationists made to save the panda have worked! There’s so much hope!
If you didn’t already know, the panda is China’s most symbolic animal.. So although the Chinese government is excited about this news, it doesn’t want to advertise it. If people relax their conservation efforts then it could reverse all the work that has been done thus far.
Here are some cute photos of pandas to celebrate.
