Red Panda  Photo Caption Competition

This month Billabong Zoo (Port Macquarie) is highlighting the plight of the Red Pandas – sadly on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Endangered. “Red Panda is listed as Endangered because its population has plausibly declined by 50% over the last three generations (estimated at 18 years) and this decline is projected to continue, and probably intensify, in the next three generations.” taken from the IUCN website http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/summary/714/0
