The Secret Lives of Giant Pandas Caught on Film

The WWF covertly recorded the lives of endangered species living in China’s panda reserves.

The World Wildlife Fund recently released secretly recorded photographs and video footage that give an unusually intimate glimpse into the lives of endangered species living in the sprawling giant panda reserves of China.

The footage was captured by a multitude of hidden cameras placed in the remote mountain habitats of the southwestern Sichuan Province.

Illustrating the daily activities and habits of endangered creatures that aren’t often viewed by people, the pictures allow the organization to glean a better understanding of how to protect the wildlife that inhabit the area.

Fan Zhiyong, director of the WWF species program in China, said in his public statement, “The images demonstrate that through the conservation of the giant panda, a flagship umbrella species, we can also protect other threatened wildlife from the same habitat and preserve biological diversity.”
