The giant panda is a well known (and well loved) species that is being driven to extinction by habitat loss. It has become one of the most endangered mammals in the world, with only 1,600 of them left. Although they have been protected from hunting and on the Endangered Species list since 1984, pandas are still disappearing.

These issues also lead to other problems such as soil compaction, erosion, and desertification.
