This chapter highlights the conservation in addressing the prospects for long-term survival of giant pandas. It is stated that if natural and social environmental conditions in the larger area of giant-panda distribution do not vary greatly, the population in the Qinling Mountains may be able to sustain itself continuously. The giant pandas of the Qinling Mountains have the potential for continued survival. The reproductive potential, population structure, and genetic diversity of the species are characteristics favoring its continued survival. Complementing the genetic data presented, a workshop report reviews the current status of genetic work on both captive and wild populations. Six items of resolutions and recommendation are regarded as the highest priorities for future activity in global genetic analysis of giant pandas.

Keywords:   giant pandas, Qinling Mountains, conservation, global genetic analysis, survival, reproductive potential, population structure, genetic diversity
