Climate change is likely to decimate bamboo populations in an isolated region of China that serves as home for nearly 20 percent of the world’s wild giant pandas.

As a result, according to new projections, between 80 and 100 percent of livable panda habitat will disappear from the region in China’s Qinling Mountains by the end of the 21st century.

Would it help if the world stopped making bamboo furniture?

I can't even imagine a future without bamboo.

Something must be done!

Maybe they will return to the diet their ancestors once ate...

While primarily herbivorous, the giant panda still retains decidedly ursine teeth, and will eat meat, fish, and eggs when available.
