Our project is about endangered species, their importance to the environmet and what can we do to reduce the reasons why they are endangered. We chose the red panda to learn more about and share the information we got.
The red pandas are like a small red bear, its scientific name is Ailuros Fulgens and it is currently endangered. The red pandas live in the Eastern Himalayas, and are associated with high-temperate forests, and bamboo groves. They can only be found in those locations. They eat leaves, and bamboo, but occasionally snack on fruits, insects, bird eggs and small lizards. They spend a lot of time in trees and their semi-retractable claws help them to move easily from branch to branch. The red colour helps them to camouflage and glow in the dark. They also use their long tails to cover themselves in the winter.
- lots of trees - lots of nature - cold weather - no hunting - no human activity
- lots of hunting and human activity - destruction - pollution
