Unfortunately, pandas are classified not only as a vulnerable species, but as one that relies on conservation in order to sustain their numbers. This is because pandas have a naturally low birth rate in the wild, and when coupled with an already limited population, it drastically hinders their ability to sustain their numbers. Thankfully, there are multiple sanctuaries, preserves, and zoos around the world dedicated to helping maintain the remaining panda population.
