Ties between the U.S. and China will not have hit a historic low until the vast American corporation I work for stops profiting from its Chinese operations to the tune of nearly $1 billion every year.
I’m sure you can find plenty of other examples.
In 2018 we drove down to DC for the March For Our Lives rally/protest.
While we were there we did the museums, capitol building(didn’t hit anyone with a flag pole and we went in through the door), monuments, and the highlight, we went to the national zoo to see the pandas.
Best day ever.
We’re really considering a late RV trip to see them before they go, it’s a 10 hour drive for us but we really have no where to be this fall.
By that I mean, this is pretty much a chinese problem. Habitat loss and pandas not getting it on is something Beijing could solve on it’s own. Give them enough space for food and time alone, their numbers will go back up.
If Beijing wants to kill them off by taking the remaining numbers, spreading their numbers thin by parading them around at major zoos worldwide… that’s their prerogative. They will be the only ones to blame if they go extinct at the end of the day. Sad but true.

Panda diplomacy is the practice of sending giant pandas from China to other countries as a tool of diplomacy. From 1941 to 1984, China gave a gift of pandas to other countries. After a change in policy in 1984, pandas were leased instead of given as a gift.
While there are few ancient records of the giant panda, "During the Manchu dynasty skins of this animal [bei-shung, presumed to be the panda] were sent as tribute to the government of China by the aborigines of western Szechuan and eastern...
TIL that Teddy Roosevelt’s sons Kermit and Theodore Jr. are thought to be the first Westerners to ever shoot a giant panda during an expedition in the 1920s. Pity that the sons of a man who was legendary as both a trophy hunter and a conservationist chose to follow his footsteps on the former instead of the latter.
