AbstractCaptive pandas are exposed to higher concentrations of environmental toxins in their food source and from atmospheric pollution than wild pandas. Moreover, the Qinling panda subspecies had significantly higher concentrations of toxic chemicals in its feces. To determine whether these toxicants also accumulate in panda's blood and impair its health, concentrations of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals were measured in blood samples. Four heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr and Pb), PCDD/Fs and PCBs were detected in blood drawn from captive Qinling pandas. Time spent in captivity was a better predictor of toxicant concentration accumulation than was panda age. More than 50% of the studied pandas were outside the normal levels for 11 health parameters, and five (ALT, LDH, Ca, Cl, TB) of the 11 parameters classified as abnormal were correlated with blood pollutant concentrations. The proportion of live sperm was significantly lower and the aberrance ratio of sperm was significantly greater for captive pandas than for wild ones. A short-term solution to reduce the health impacts of pollution and toxicant exposure of Qinling pandas is to relocate breeding centers to less contaminated areas and to strictly control the quality of their food provided. A longer term solution depends on improving air quality by reducing toxic emissions.
