The giant panda is the rarest member of the bear family and among the world’s most threatened animal. It is universally loved, and has a special significance for WWF as it has been the organization's logo since 1961, the year WWF was founded. With only 300 pandas left in breeding zones and zoos around the world, they have become public symbols for
endangered species and conservation efforts.
