20 Panda Quotes About The Adorable Bear of China

While the West has brown and black bears, and the Arctic has polar bears, the East has lazy yet adorable black and white giant pandas. The fluffy giants became a symbol not only for a nation and the fight for conservation but also a favorite in modern popular culture. Aside from feature films and stuffed toys, let's sincerely appreciate these creatures through our handpicked panda quotes below.

Panda Quotes About The Black And White Bear

Beloved by millions across the globe, the giant panda is native to the bamboo forests of central China. While they may be carnivores by classification, they are primarily herbivores in practice, with bamboo making up a staggering 99% of their diet. 

Like zebras, pandas have black and white coats to camouflage from their predators, which a study proved through modern image analysis1.

In 2016, IUCN downlisted the giant pandas from endangered to vulnerable thanks to the conservation efforts of the Chinese government. Yet, their report also says the population could decline in the 80 years due to climate change, eliminating more than 35% of their habitats.

As we cherish and share these panda quotes, let's remember how our actions affect these magnificent creatures. As a reminder, mark National Panda Day in your calendars, a day dedicated to raising awareness and protecting pandas.
