Percent of change of pandas in the wild

By the one and only Ryan Clinton

How has the the number of pandas in the wild changed from (1974-2004)?

In a mass survey done from 1974 to 1977 there were about 1,000 to 1,100 pandas in the world. In a more recent survey by WWF (World Wildlife Fund) in 2004 there were 1,600 pandas left in the wild. We can see that the amount of pandas in the wild has gone up by 600 pandas but by what percent is that?

My math

It has been very interesting reserching this topic because everyone thinks that pandas are going extient in the past. Now the panda population in the world in the wild is slowly increasing and I find that very interesting. I think pandas are very cute though.

Here are some sources I used:
