A great little non-profit that understands the needs of the endangered panda. They focus on the tactical requirements, and have made a significant contribution to saving this species. Their goal of replanting bamboo is the type of focused activity that will have a huge impact in the effort to save the wild giant panda.

Pandas International is an awesome organization! How many people in this world think that pandas are precious but don't realize how rare they have become or how hard a fight is required just to save their kind?! "Not many" is my belief. People smile, laugh, and enjoy them but they don't realize that they must do something to help this species to survive! Pandas International helps people to understand just what these wonderful animals are up against and all the needs they have in order to continue to survive in the wild. What's more, the organization helps people to actually feel that they are "hands on" in helping the pandas to survive by donating to specific funds for milk, bamboo, etc. I personally love knowing that when I send money it is going specifically where I want it to go. Most organizations don't offer the opportunity to specify exactly what you want your donation used for. It helps me to feel more involved and more valuable as a donor - more a part of truly helping these animals rather than having my donation go to pay "administrative expenses" and so on. And finally, I love the fact that Pandas International invites people to go on yearly tours of China & (most of all) our beloved panda reserves every year - it is comforting to know that you have the opportunity to enjoy such an experience with people who have done it before and know what to expect from all aspects of the tour. To me, pandas show a whimsical side of God that I truly adore -they are so unbelieveably interesting and lovable. THANK YOU PANDAS INTERNATIONAL FOR ALL THAT YOU DO TO SUPPORT THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF THESE WONDERFUL AND UNIQUE ANIMALS that are irreplaceable. I am very pleased to be able to have my say on this organization. Thank You, Sincerely, Michele Stevens

I have supported PI from it's inception volunteering for events... PI helps with donations of milk for panda babies and bamboo for all pandas! without PI's support and dedication we wouldn't be able to love all of these wonderful bears!

I first heard of Pandas International a number of years ago. I started donating monthly about 5 years ago to the milk fund and later to the bamboo fund. In 2009 adopted Hao Hao, Hua Mei's daughter. I continue and will continue that adoption now and in the future. The quarterly updates that PI sends are illuminating as to her growth and antics. (She is a definite character.) I have also purchased gear from PI and felt that it was a good value in support of a good cause. I heartily endore Pi as a Green 2012 organization.

During its eleven year history, PI has become a global leader in the fight to save the endangered giant Panda. With a small staff of three part time employees and an unpaid director, PI has been able to supply panda centers with formual for cubs, critical medical equipment and supllies for the veterinarians, educational materials through its website, www.pandasinternational.org, and is currently engaged in a bamboo replanting campaign to help counter the loss of native bamboo due to the horrific earthquake of 2008, torrential spring rains of 2009-2010, and unusually heavy snows and disasterous floods in 2011. Theyt have quickly become a recognized and respected player in wildlife conservation and sustainable habitat protection.

Panda's International is a wonderful organization working to keep pandas in the world. They have done so much for the pandas from providing formula and incubators for the babies to providing food and shelter and programs to reintroduce pandas back into the wild. The dedication of the executive director and the board to the pandas is inspirational.

Always fond of the cutest, cuddliest "bear", I was fortunate to meet the founders of Pandas International, Diane and Suzanne in 2001. Discovering their passion for the panda, as I was about to embark on my first trip to China, they assisted myself and 3 companions on a side trip to the Woolong Panda Reserve where we were able to visit what we thought would be a "zoo". Surprised when there we were able to realize how endangered the panda really was and how lucky we were to be able to watch, hold and even feed a cub during our days at Woolong. Returning home, I knew I needed to do more to ensure extinction was not the next phase.
I am proud to be a board member since that time and am thrilled that companies like my employer, MLT Vacations and my husbands, Suncor Energy have also become supporters of this rare and precious animal.
Please donate, volunteer, and ask your company for a donation or sponsorship of a Pandas International event.
You really can change the future by simply spreading the message.
Thank you,
Stephanie Moss

Seeing the donations become supplies arrive to China making a difference in the ability the staff at the reserve have to get the breeding program, feeding and medical needs of the pandas on track is very rewarding.

Change nothing but the amount of donations so that more funds could assist in a faster finding of how to sustain this amazing animal in the wild.

Pandas International is a wonderful organization. They bring recognition to the highly endangered Giant Panda. Their work has inspired many to become involved with not only pandas but other endangered species. The world is a better place with Giant Pandas in it and the pandas are lucky to have Suzanne Braden and Pandas International!

Suzanne Braden and her staff do a wonderful job at raising awareness for the endangered Giant Panda. I am amazed at the hard work and dedication of this group. It is evident in everything that the do that the Giant Panda is their first priority. With only 1,600 Pandas left in the wild, we need to act now and prevent extinction of this beautiful animal. Thanks Pandas International!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The efforts that they made to help the Giant Pandas after the earthquake hit the Wolong Panda Reserve. In the efforts that they made to raise money to plant bamboo in the areas of China where the environment has depleted the Panda's supply of food.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get them more recognition for the great work that they do.
