What’s black and white and cute all over? Pandas! March 16th is National Panda Day. Although the origins of the holiday are unclear, many organizations such as the Memphis Zoo and the iPanda Channel in China, have acknowledged the holiday. Many social media users, specifically on Twitter have also acknowledged the cute holiday with the trending hashtag “#NationalPandaDay”. Several are celebrating by posting facts and images of pandas to encourage awareness of the endangered species, who have been on the endangered list since 1990 from both habitat loss and poaching. Now, there are only 1,000 giant pandas on the earth, so this endangered species is on the brink of extinction.
