How many red pandas in the world are there?

Less than 10000

Not too many people know that almost 50 percent of the red pandas live in the Eastern Himalayas.  How do red pandas look like?  They are larger than a cat with a bear like body.  They are extremely acrobatic.  They generally stay in trees.  Unfortunately, the loss of nesting trees and bamboo is causing a decline in red panda populations.  It is interesting to know that red pandas are often killed when they get caught in traps meant for other animals such as wild pigs.
