Ailuropoda Melanoleucas: The Giant Panda

Good Essays
Upon walking into a zoo, to the left is a metaled, glassed cage filled with coal- black and white, fluffy, giant pandas. Everything in life seems alright for them, but what about their family members that are in the wild? What about the panda bears that are still out in the wild endangered? Ailuropoda melanoleucas, or commonly known as giant pandas, are rarely found in the wild. East of the Tibetan plateau in South China in a mixed broadleaf forest is home to the giant panda. There are only around 1600 panda bears on the earth right now (Goodall, Maynard, Hudson 169).

Ethics and morals play a role in it as well. For every cause, there is an effect and what goes around comes around. Destroying other species knowingly and not emphasizing or even caring enough to save or aid the species of giant panda bears will eventually come back to haunt humanity. No one likes to have their home taken from them and having to attempt to readapt in a new environment that does not provide all of the necessary foods and the domain that is needed in order to survive. All together animals are fascinating creatures and no one knows what the end result will be or what gain humanity can receive from an animal, so why not try to keep a well-balanced population of a species like the giant panda to accommodate with the greediness of

    Domain: Eukarya Giant Pandas belong in this domain as they are composed of eukaryotic cells that have a specific task or function in the body.
