China's First Panda Census

| Filed under: Panda

China has counted its 1.34 billion people — but who cares about people?

What's really important is how many pandas they have!

After conducting a census of its human population last year, China is about to start a once-every-10-years count of giant pandas in the wild.

The official China Daily reported more than 60 trackers were trained at Wanglang National Reserve in the southwestern province of Sichuan, which is believed to have the largest number of wild pandas in China.

They will collect droppings for DNA analysis, which will allow zoologists to track individual pandas and accurately estimate the population.

It's gross, but we hear it's more accurate than going door to door.
