Kung Fu Panda 4

Kung Fu Panda 4 tells the story of Po, the giant panda who is the Dragon Warrior and is tapped to become the Spiritual Leader of the Valley of Peace. Just like Po takes on the role of Spiritual Leader, real-life animals, such as giant pandas and snow leopards, contribute to the health of their natural ecosystems. In fact, all organisms play a valuable role in keeping their native ecosystems balanced and thriving. When we protect one species, we’re helping to protect all of them for the benefit of people and nature.
