Farms and houses are being built, and the forests are in trouble
In China, the Giant Pandas' home, the number of people is growing. Homes and farms are being built here and there in the forests, and the places where they live are being split apart. Now they live in small groups in many small forests, and it's very hard for male pandas to find mates. They're even having trouble finding their joy---bamboo.

Let's build paths to save the pandas!
There is a plan to help the Giant Panda. By building paths, all of the separate forests that the pandas live in will be connected. To do this, some farmland will have to be returned to nature. This means, it will be difficult to save the Giant Panda if people don't stop developing.
