The giant panda's threat that is most severe is habitat loss. People will clear entire bamboo forests for farmland. This takes away its food and protection. Before people had big machines, pandas lived all over Asia. Because pandas eat so much, they might move many times in one day. However, because they keep on clearing the forest, pandas aren't able to get the food they need. On the contrast, if people start growing bamboo, in a year or two, pandas would have plenty of food.
