This title is a magnificently illustrated celebration of one of the most iconic, beloved, and mysterious animals in the world. The result of five years of meticulous research and stunning photography "A Visual Celebration of Giant Pandas" is a delightful volume that follows in the footsteps of the shy and enigmatic giant panda, and captures both adults and cubs on camera in close-up situations. Beautifully photographed, in rarely seen settings, the authors explain what makes the panda such a lovable icon, and why the public cannot have enough of this symbol of quiet hope for survival in a fast-changing planet. It also provides readers with fascinating and detailed information about Giant Panda's and the other species that share its habitat, such as the red panda and snow leopard. The issue of 'pandaplomacy' is also addressed, with the arrival of pandas in Singapore in 2012 and their likely arrival in Malaysia in 2013. Finally the book assesses the chances of survival for the giant panda, and the efforts being made to preserve its habitat.
