Certainly not, as they are quite rare and only about 1,600 exist in the wild. They only live in a few isolated mountain ranges in South Central China in forests that contain bamboo, their main dietary source.
Though the overall population of pandas, once extant throughout China, Myanmar, and Northern Vietnam, has been in a decline for thousands of years, a survey published in 2004 revealed 40% more pandas in the wild than had previously been guessed. Still, this sudden increase is most likely attributable to more rigorous census methods rather than to an actual increase in the panda population. Pandas can currently be found in only six mountain ranges in the Gansu, Shaanxi, and Sichuan provinces in China, numbering at about 1600 animals. The panda’s total range is about 29,500 sq km. If you want to meet a panda, you had better practice your Chinese and pack hiking boots!
It is true, giant pandas are rare and only live in the wild in the Gansu, Shaanxi, and Sichuan Provinces of China. However, because they are a national symbol of China, the Chinese government and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have been working together to protect the land they live on and create giant panda reserves. There are problems, however, with China’s economy rapidly growing and more development occurring in unprotected areas where some of the giant pandas still live. There is also a constant problem of poaching.
