Giant pandas are no longer endangered in the wild.

Chinese authorities have reclassified the giant panda as ‘not vulnerable’ because the population outside of captivity is more than 1,800.

While giant pandas are no longer endangered in the wild, they are still vulnerable. The IUCN has said climate change could destroy more than 35% of their bamboo habitat in the next 80 years.

However, this week’s announcement was met with delight on social media. Related hashtags on Weibo have been read nearly 10million times.
