Giant Panda

Support conservation projects of Giant Panda

Giant panda, with a distinctive black and white coat, is the most iconic national treasure in China. Their daily diet consists almost entirely of various bamboo species. Since bamboo contains very little nutritional value, pandas must eat 12 to 38kg of bamboos every day to meet their energy needs. Giant pandas are generally solitary that each adult has a well-defined home range. Encounters are rare outside the brief mating season.The earthquake on 12 May 2008 affected 83% of China's panda habitats, and over 500 km2 were completely destroyed (that's an area equivalent to 2,630 Victoria Parks in Hong Kong). The breeding centre in Wolong and other field stations were also destroyed, which has compromised patrolling and research activities. In addition, habitat fragmentation by human activities is another major threat to the species.

Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, Hong Kong (OPCFHK) is actively involved in giant pandas conservation. We have established the Giant Panda Rebuilding Fund and funded different conservation projects.

The Giant Panda Rebuilding Fund

OPCFHK conservation effortswere extended from infrastructure rebuilding after earthquake to a three-year donation commitment in July 2017; aiming to support scientific research, capacity building, as well as education projects being carried out in Sanjiang field station under Sichuan Wolong National Nature Reserve.

Funding Giant Panda Conservation Projects

OPCFHK have funded dozens of giant panda conservation projects over the years.
