China’s conservation efforts have paid off. On Wednesday, China announced that the giant panda was no longer endangered after decades of hard work. More than 1,800 animals are now free to roam the wild.

According to the World Wildlife Fund wild giant pandas mainly live in China’s Yangtze River basin. However, the development of roads, dams and other infrastructure over time has obstructed their environment. This has limited their living space as well as their access to bamboo, which is a crucial part of their diet.

Cui said that the country has also seen a reduction in fishing in the river basin due to wetland and forest protection. The country is working to further develop methods to monitor biodiversity and to increase local and international cooperation in their conservation efforts, Cui said. Cui stated that the country is currently working on methods to monitor biodiversity, and to improve local and international cooperation in conservation efforts.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature had previously upgraded giant pandas to “vulnerable” in September 2016 after their population grew nearly 17% within a decade, but until now, China had not agreed with their designation.
