Screw the pandas

Posted in Uncategorized by Adam Westbrook on February 2, 2007

Today’s G2 has a big spread on “Ten animals we have to save – and how to do it.”

Don’t ask me what it’s like – I can’t be arsed to read it – but a quick skim shows the ten animals the G2 wants to save are:

  1. Tiger
  2. Orang-utan
  3. Atlantic cod
  4. Leatherback turtle
  5. Wandering albatross
  6. Iberian lynx
  7. Mountain Gorilla
  8. Western Pacific grey whale
  9. Mediterranean monk seal
  10. Polar bear

Anything missing anyone? That’s right, the Panda – a regular on the “awww sooo cute we must save the fwuffy wuffy animals” list – hasn’t made onto this (far from scientific) countdown.


For anyone who’s unfamiliar with my stance on Pandas, please refer to a year old entry to this blog’s previous incarnation, entitled: “Pandas Should Die“.

Maybe the G2 lot read it…
