Sichuan's pandas threatened by Chinese mining companies

Video | 2013-04-16

Mining and road construction has forced the local giant panda population of Longmen Mountain, Sichuan into an ever smaller and fragmented area. The panda is supposed to be one of China's most loved animals. How can we be willing to let their lives fall wayside in the name of economic development? In addition to impacting the native giant panda population, a Greenpeace report has revealed that phosphate mining in Longmen Mountain greatly exacerbates the risk of landslides and other geological disasters, threatening the safety of miners and residents downstream.
