Causes
of Enda
ngerme
 When discussing the causes
nt
of endangerment, it is
important to understand that
individual
species are not the
only factors involved in this
dilemma. Endangerment is a
broad issue, one that involves
the habitats and
environments where species
live and interact with one
another. Although some
measures are being taken to
help specific cases of
endangerment, the universal
problem cannot be solved

 The giant panda is classified
as a member of the order
Carnivora (Carnivores) and is
a member of the family
Procyonidae. The male giant
panda stands up to five feet
tall, and weighs up to 265
pounds. The female giant
panda is smaller and weighs
less. The giant panda is
classified as an endangered Giant Panda
species due to the fact that it
only exists in severely
fragmented subpopulations
consisting of up to 250
mature adults, and that there
has been continuing decline
in the area of habitat. The
giant panda feeds mainly on
bamboo, even though it is
classified as a carnivore.
