Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Finally some good news in the animal kingdom - the giant panda has been removed from the endangered species act after significant population growth over the last decade. In 2009, officials declared the panda would go extinct within three generations without concerted measures to save them, according to Science Alert. Now, despite extraordinary odds, there are said to be roughly 2,060 pandas living in the wild - up 17 percent since China first instilled wide-ranging protective measures.
