Are Giant Pandas Overrated?

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

Are giant pandas overrated?

Sure, they’re cute and bring a lot of tourism to zoos and wildlife parks, but they don’t do much for the environment compared to other endangered plants and animals.

Furthermore, the Chinese government imposes astronomical costs for ‘renting’ these animals to American zoos, and that doesn’t include the expenses necessary for food and medical care.

Some conservationists suggest that it may be worth focusing our conservation efforts on other animals instead, especially those that help the environment amid global changes connected to human population growth.

While no one wants to see the giant panda go away, the facts in this video lay enough ground for a solid argument.
