Red Panda Population Riley Nowak & Cameron Swarens

The Red Panda lives in many places one place being china in forests. They have become endangered because of deforestation, which has affected their shelter. Also, because of their diet consisting of acorns, eggs, bamboo, fruit, and roots, they have are loosing their food resources.

In the past, the Red Pandas had a lot of trees for resources such as shelter and food so, that made the rate of survival to reproduce increase so the number of Red Pandas increased. Recently the pandas have had had a loss of resources due to deforestation so there has been a plateau of the number of Red Pandas that has now started to decrease.

Immigration and birth of Red Pandas would result in more Red Pandas coming into their population which would increase the number of them. On the Contrary, emigration and death of Red Pandas would result in a decrease number of them.

Two density-dependent limiting factors that could influence the population size could be competition with the other populations around with the dwindling resources and disease caused by having to find other food resources that could make them sick because they are not used to it.

Two density-independent limiting factors that could influence population size could be deforestation, where humans are cutting down trees and destroying the forests they live in, and any weather or natural disasters that could occur such as a freak storm.
