That's How Many Giant Pandas Are Left in the World.
Their numbers are dwindling, and these real-life teddy bears need our help. While conservation efforts are underway, these cuddly creatures are facing serious problems in the wild.
Other reasons the panda population is threatened: Illegal poaching for the black market remains a problem, pandas often have difficult pregnancies, and mother pandas only have enough milk to feed one cub, even though two or three cubs are often born at once. Plus, pandas are really picky in choosing a mate.
So, how dire is the situation? The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) says there are just 1,864 pandas left in the wild. There are an additional 400 pandas in captivity, according to Pandas International. They're listed as “vulnerable,” which is the category between “near threatened” and “endangered.”
They coined the crisis: Pandamic.
In order to create a wholesome environment for pandas to propagate, we decided to take matters into our hands, we rejected the speculation that pandas are fussy and having difficulties, we reckon female pandas are going through an (r)evolution, they have collectively shunned the entire male species (bar a few, obviously). The adorable and mischievous nature of male pandas has run its course, the ladies are opposing (chewing) in silence. They want change!
And for the first time ever, the (panda) ladies will get what they want: badass pandas.
Say hello to the new breed.
Pandamic is a collection of 400 Badass Panda NFTs—unique digital collectibles living on the Ethereum blockchain. This bunch will kick start the revolution, to reignite the pandassion, no two are alike, and each one of them can be officially owned by a single person on the Ethereum blockchain, be the first to own a mf panda that will once and for all, end the 'pandamic'!
There are no bonding curves here. Buying a Pandamic Badass Panda costs 0.08 ETH. There are no price tiers; PBP membership costs are the same for everyone.
