Welcome to the panda village
In Kung Fu Panda 3, the pupil becomes the master, as Po discovers his past and meets an entire village of lovable and care-free pandas.
When Po's long-lost father Li suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travel to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new characters. But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible & learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.
The panda paradise shows a place where nature has thrived in secrecy. Through the awesome work of WWF, we can help to protect the habitat of Po and his friends, ensuring that there will always be a place that they can call home.
WWF working hard to protect pandas
Slowly but surely, the number of giant pandas is increasing. After decades of dedicated conservation work by the Chinese government supported by WWF, there are now 1,864 pandas in the wild. But this iconic species is not out of the woods yet.
The main threat to giant pandas is habitat loss and the fragmentation of their unique bamboo forest home. The Chinese government has created 67 panda reserves but a third of pandas still live outside protected areas in pockets of forest that could be carved up by new roads and railways, or destroyed by expanding human settlements and agriculture.
WWF is working to ensure the future of the giant panda by assisting the government to protect its fragile home. While creating new protected areas and expanding existing ones is critical to the species’ survival, WWF is also helping to connect pockets of bamboo forest so isolated pandas can move and meet and breed. WWF is also working with local communities to develop alternative, sustainable livelihoods to ease the ever-increasing human pressure on the forests.
But WWF is not trying to save the panda’s home for the sake of the panda alone. China’s bamboo forests are also home to other endangered species, such as the golden monkey, takin and crested ibis, and provide vital natural resources for local communities as well as water supplies for millions of people living downstream from the mountains. By protecting the panda’s home, we can safeguard its rich biodiversity, and ensure that people and wildlife live in harmony.
