QUEEN_NAMIE picked Zoos:
Yes but in the zoo they are properly cared for and it greatly increases the likelihood they will have offspring. In the wild there is a good chance they will not mate and then the dwindling population continues to go down even further.

Namie put her finger right on the pulse there. Until they are assuredly more well populated, just like any other animal, they're better in the zoo.

Zoos are better for Giant Pandas, as long as the enclosures are big, because they're endangered.

Pandas are probably more happy in the wild. But I do agree with AmyFitz that pandas are well cared for in Zoos.

they're more likely to be hunted in the wild, and they are endangered so they're safer in the zoo

It depends in some zoos the have great conditions while in the wild hunters can catch them and kill them. But there´s a "zoo" near my house and it has some animals and one panda. The panda has a 2 by 2 meter cage painted in green with no space to do nothing:@ in that conditions I prefere for them to be free

Even though the wilderness is their natural habitat, they are in peril and will become extint if they are left there in the wild. Zoos might not be the best thing, but they will be safe.

the thing is.. it's going a lot better with pandas, so it's no longer necessary for them to be trapped in a zoo, with enough monitorring they survive perfectly well in the wild.

i do love animals in the wild but ya i agree with QUEEN_NAMIE that pandas are endangered and keeping them in the zoo will keep them more safe and will last longer in captivity.. but in the wild is also a good thing cause they can improve their natural instincts and that actually where they belong.. hmm.. so hard..

yes i agree with QUEEN_NAMIE but sexydeppluver they are not captive in a zoo, they are properly taken care of and alsas protected! In the wild there is a greater chance that they could starve, die, or be killed by pochers! how could you possible think the wild?!

tigerlover656. yes the zoo has better advantages of them being able to live longer, but in the wild they could learn how to improve their instincts and skills, theyre not common pets dat u jst treat them spoiled and think theyre cute pets, as they can be wild at times, for example if they live in the zoo and they r then release in the wild they could hv more chance of not surviving very well coz they dont know how to defend themselves or they dont know how to use their skills in the wild.

tigerlover656 picked Zoos:
no i have to defend that because zoos don;t spoil them, they have to give the exact amount of food that they need and they also train them, so if you also agree with me that thye will live longer, then why do you want them in the wild? they would go EXTINCT in the wild. i once did prefer them in the wild, too-but they have a better chance of going extinct in the wild. i mean think about it, if zoos just decided to let them free in china, f you had kids they would be asking what is a panda? because they are not there anymore. they are always taken care of properly in zoos. they do not spoil them, and they alrady know how to defend themselves and know how to find food.

Smoking is bad for your health, for Panda's in particular, but also for people.
Quit smoking and the Panda can be saved!

Besides, your health is more important than heaving offspring.

I'm here to make a point for the people who chose: Wild

I believe they are better off in the Zoo for 2 reasons:
1= They are cared for and helped by scientist for when the pandas are in labor and soon have their child, most cubs don't make it. So, we help the chance of survival for those cubs.

2=Why do you think they are going extinct people? One reason could be, oh I don't know, because they are in the wild? Well, now China has finally stopped but before they were cutting down bamboo forest for more room. So, when the Pandas did live in the wild, they lost food and their homes. You call that better?

So yes, I think it should be best (for now, you never know, we might change) if Pandas stayed in Zoos for awhile. This is my opinion and just a suggestion. *My mom loves -and I mean LOVES -if you think you are the biggest Panda lover, well, sorry, you're not- Pandas so much that she donates thousands of dollars to research and zoos to help Pandas, and she even adopted one! Cool,huh? Man, how she loves Pandas*

I don't like zoos that force pandas to reproduce even though the pandas themselves don't want to. That is the worst thing about zoos.
