They are cute, they are funny but they aren’t a lot today on Earth. So, let’s take the most of them while they are still here. The panda is a conservation reliant endangered species. A 2007 report shows 239 pandas living in captivity inside China and another 27 outside the country. Wild population estimates vary; one estimate shows that there are about 1,590 individuals living in the wild, while a 2006 study via DNA analysis estimated that this figure could be as high as 2,000 to 3,000. Some reports also show that the number of pandas in the wild is on the rise. However, the jucn does not believe there is enough certainty yet to reclassify the species from Endangered to Vulnerable.
