The Giant Panda is China’s national symbol, the only country where it lives in the wild. Human activity and other natural factors have brought this placid animal to near-extinction. Today, the Chinese government takes great care to protect and enlarge the panda population. Its panda breeding and rescue centers provide a safe environment and attract millions of tourists.
