Threatened species of Ailurus fulgens

Other Names:
Threatened species of Lesser panda
Snow Leopards are the main predators of Red Panda although Yellow-necked Martins will take cubs in the nest. Habitat destruction is also implicated in the survival of the Red Panda.
Red panda population numbers in the wild are not known, but its specialised diet, low production rate and low population density make this species vulnerable to extinction locally when the environment changes.

The red panda is considered as "Endangered" by the IUCN. CITES lists the species as "Appendix 1".
