The giant panda
This is a photograph of one of the pandas at the American National Zoo in Washington. There are only about 1000 pandas left in the wild, so captive breeding in zoos and reserves is very important if the panda is to survive.
The pandas at the zoo are fed a diet of bamboo and vegetables, and are given lots of things to do so they don't get bored.
