Summary, etc.:
A thousand years ago, more than 20,000 pandas roamed wild through their native China. But within the last few decades, human have destroyed more than half the pandas' habitat. Humans have also poached them, and polluted and overpopulated the earth - all of which makes the panda vulnerable to extinction. Yet now the giant panda is slowly making a comeback. How? From the Sibert Medal - winning author of Team Moon and Girls Think of Everything comes an exciting case study about the groundbreaking reintroduction efforts in China - which include scientists dressing up in panda costumes! This innovative, out-of-the-box thinking proves that while humans may be the cause of this dire situation, we may also be part of the solution. And that solution - humans reintroducing animals to the wild - might well help bring other endangered species back from the brink of extinction. -- From dust jacket.
