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.
