If you happen to wander in south central China mountain ranges there’s a chance, although it’s a very remote one that you’re going to see one of those rare Pandas. The Chinese authorities are very keen in preserving the bears’ natural habitat that they don’t allow tracking their movements.
Michigan State University research team did an analysis on the Pandas’ movements which has provided very important information on how the Pandas move around and interacting with their kind. The research team said that they continued following the whereabouts of the 5 wild Pandas using the GPS for over two year.
Study’s co-author Vanessa Hull and Jindong Zhang said, “Pandas are such an elusive species and it’s very hard to observe them in wild, so we haven’t had a good picture of where they are from one day to the next”.
The study is therefore served as great source of knowledge concerning how Pandas lived among themselves. It was on 2010 to 2012 when the Pandas were captured and then set free after installing a GPS on each of them.
They were tracked as they moved about Southwest China’s Wolong Nature. It was during this time that the research time discovered that although Pandas are maybe loners, but they don’t shy away from the company of other Pandas.
Pandas are considered as endangered species in China. However, for a couple of years now, China has allowed the research team to follow the Pandas’ movements using the GPS. Their aim is to know what’s really happening in Pandas life.
Pandas often spent time looking for food, not just any but the right kind of bamboo. They are not antisocial kind. They go in groups together. So, what was said about them being the loner type and leading solitary lives, not true at all. Like you and me, they want to spend some quite time also.
