Wood harvest puts pandas at risk

Date : 26th June 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



People and giant pandas are still coming into conflict. So concludes a report into the firewood collecting habits of people living in one of China's largest panda reserves. It found that over the past 30 years, people living in rural communities have ventured ever deeper into prime panda habitat to collect wood to burn. Unless more is done to meet the needs of these rural households, the report says, they may continue to cut down prime forest, putting pandas at risk.
