5 Ways You Can Help to Save the Pandas
With their black and white fur, adorable round faces, and playful nature, it's no wonder giant pandas have captured the hearts of millions globally. Due to habitat loss, deforestation, and poaching, the giant panda population has been in decline. Whilst giant pandas are no longer classed as endangered, they're still not out of the woods yet. Luckily, there are steps we can take to help protect and conserve these adorable "vulnerable" animals. In this blog post, we'll outline 5 simple ways you can do your part to save pandas.
5 Ways to Help Save the Pandas
1. Donate to a Nonprofit that Helps Pandas
By donating to a nonprofit that helps with panda conservation efforts, you can help to preserve panda habitats, increase forest areas, and raise awareness about the plight of pandas. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) works with the Chinese government's National Conservation Program, helping to assist with conservation decisions, and equipping peope with the means to protect pandas and their habitat.
2. Become an Ecotourist
Ecotourism is a responsible and sustainable way to travel and explore natural areas without negatively impacting the environment and the wildlife that lives there. When visiting panda habitats, choose tour operators that prioritize sustainability and adhere to strict guidelines that ensure minimal disturbance to pandas and their ecosystems.
3. Sponsor a Panda
Another way to contribute to panda conservation is by sponsoring a panda through a reputable organization. WWF has an Adopt a Giant Panda option, which is a fun way for people of all ages to get involved with panda conservation.
4. Use Recycled Paper
Deforestation is one of the main threats to panda habitats. You can help mitigate this issue by choosing recycled paper products whenever possible and reducing your paper use. This reduces the demand for wood pulp and saves trees, which in turn helps to preserve panda habitats. Our nature-inspired hand towels are a much nicer and panda-friendly alternative to paper towels! We even have panda towels!
5. Help to Fight Climate Change
One of the most significant threats to pandas is the decline of bamboo availability caused by climate change. We all have a part to play in helping to fight climate change, whether by walking instead of using your car, helping to plant more trees, or purchasing carbon offsets when booking travel tickets. We're committed to supporting reforestation and fund the planting of 10 trees for every order placed with us. Read our Eden Reforestation Projects post to find out more.
By taking any of these 5 steps, you can make a difference in the fight to save giant pandas. Through raising awareness, supporting conservation efforts, and helping to tackle climate change, we can help to ensure that giant pandas will be given the best chance to survive.
