Panda reserve hit by earthquake

James Fallows blogs, ". . . the world's total population of giant pandas, captive and wild, is well under 2,000. If the number of missing Chinese people were proportional to the number of missing pandas, some two million people would be unaccounted for."

This map shows the proximity of human population centers and wild panda habitat to the epicenter of the earthquake in central china.
