Should We Save the Panda?

August 26th, 2011 · Posted by Hugo · 2 Comments

A 2009 article on The Guardian presents arguments against saving the panda as well as arguments in favour:

TV naturalist Chris Packham said pandas might not be worth saving. Mark Wright from the World Wide Fund for Nature is one of the many who disagree.

What do you think? Read the whole article: Should pandas be left to face extinction?

Either way, in the light of Time to Start Giving, I’m going to add the WWF to my list of regular donations.

    I think he is making a valid point, but the topic might be a little misleading. On the other hand I would probably not have read it if it were something like “Conservation funds aren’t efficiently”.

    When are sensationalist headlines good, and when evil? Misleading headlines attract eyes/readers… ’tis a tricky one, I’ve found. 😉
