Panda numbers are declining primarily because of loss of habitat and their food source. Pandas feed almost exclusively on bamboo: however, humans have degraded their habitat where the bamboo grows, and the population has gradually shrunk to a fairly small region of China.

How can the decline of one population affect another?

The decline of any population will perturb the ecological balance. If the number of one particular species declines, then any species that preys on it will lose some of its food supply and so its population may decline as well. A species in parasitic or symbiotic relationship is also likely to decline. On the other hand, any species which lives in competition - for food or other resources - would face less competition and so its numbers are likely to increase.
