Pandė gjigande duke ngrėnė shkop bambuje

Pandat gjigjante nė Kinė rrezikohen tė ngordhin nga uria pėr shkak se ushqimi i tyre i preferuar, bambuja shtizė, po ēel lule dhe po kthehet nė kashtė. Gazeta China Daily thotė disa panda do tė shpėrngulen nė vendbanime tė tjera pėr shkak tė mungesės sė ushqimit. Louisa Lim njofton:

China's giant pandas have long been threatened with extinction, suffering from low birth rates and human encroachment on their habitat. Now they are facing a new threat - starvation. China's state-run media says their favourite food, arrow bamboo, is beginning to die off. It is part of a cycle that happens every sixty years and the new crop will take around ten years to mature. Last time the bamboo bloomed was in the 1980s and then around two hundred and fifty giant pandas died of starvation.

Now at least one nature reserve is trying to move those animals at risk into new habitats or find them new sources of food. In another blow for the giant panda, it is being reported that the endangered Tibetan antelope is being tipped as China's Olympic mascot, ahead of the panda. One official was even quoted as lobbying for the antelope because it is more sporty than the other contenders. But panda supporters are holding out hope that Beijing's Olympic emblem could be composed of more than one animal.
