In celebration of Kung Fu Panda 3, releasing January 29th 2016, WWF is working to raise awareness about the plight of giant pandas through a video with the film’s star, Jack Black. In Kung Fu Panda 3, the main character Po, played by Black, teams up with his father and his friends to save a new panda village from villain Kai.
An icon for endangered species and wildlife conservation, giant pandas face a number of threats in the wild – threats even more serious than Kai! Their home in the mountains and forests in China is in jeopardy from habitat fragmentation and destruction.
WWF, the first international conservation organization to work in China to protect pandas, assists with a variety of solutions to strengthen habitat protection for giant pandas. The good news? In just a decade, the wild panda population has grown nearly 17% to an estimated 1,864 individuals. And the geographic range of these furry black and white bears increased by more than 11% since 2003.
But we need to do more. WWF's focus for the next 10 years sets the course for panda protection efforts to improve panda habitat in a manner that balances conservation with local sustainable development. And WWF is working all over the world to protect wildlife and create a future in which people live in harmony with nature.
