The reason behind this viral event is to create awareness that currently there are estimate only 1,600 (or fewer) wild Pandas left in Earth. Yup, you see this, only 1,600 left, in the wild not in the Zoo. This awareness campaign is created by WWF (http://www.worldwildlife.org/species/giant-panda).
Most Pandas gone case in the wild is still due to illegal hunting for their fur, although now the number already declined a lot but their habitat losses due to forestation is also another great threat. If this is not stop sooner or later our children can only see paper Pandas or encaptive Pandas in the Zoo only. But what we can do now? The most is only donate to WWF in their website and hope for the best in their effort to protect wild Pandas.
