This chapter develops the thesis that populations of pandas must be managed at a landscape scale which includes core areas of protection, buffer zones, dispersal corridors, and other forested tracts. It also presents a straightforward scorecard for keeping track of progress, or lack thereof, in addressing conservation issues. There are three important scales at which to focus future conservation activities: ecoregion, landscape, and site. The conservation of giant pandas in the wild has made significant progress since the ratification of China's management plan in 1992. A large-scale ecoregion plan was recently completed for a region that includes all of the panda's remaining wild habitat. A panel report briefly summarizes the history of efforts that led to the estimate of approximately one thousand giant pandas surviving in the wild today.
