I've been adopter of panda Qian Qian at Wolong Panda Club since 2007 and became volunteer advisor to Pandas International (PI) since 2012.
Pandas International is a great non-profit organization that makes every effort to help a very lovely but endangered animal species-the giant panda. Not
mentioning all that PI has done for the pandas in the past 13 years since its foundation, only in the past couple of years I've witnessed and also assisted PI to donate various products to help the pandas: vaccines, agents, anesthetic machines and rifles, GPS collars and radio transmitters, special formula milk powder for panda cubs, incubators etc. Everything is expansive and needs special effort and care to finally be delivered to the panda base.
Besides PI gives concern and support to panda keepers, researchers and staff who work in remote and isolated mountains where have had experienced a couple of huge earthquakes and several disarstrous floods. Each year when PI people come to China, they would host dinner to thank panda keepers, researchers and staff for their hard work. PI also supports panda researchers for training abroad, which can broaden their mind and view and helps in their work for the pandas.
Suzanne, Director of PI is a respectful lady. What's in her mind is all about how to raise more fund and how to help pandas. Just a few days ago, when I accompanied her shopping for fundraising for pandas in Beijing, she did not buy anything for herself and many vendors said she was mean. Yes, she is mean to herself, but she is generous in helping the pandas. And so is every panda friend I know from PI!
I hope more people will get to know PI, help PI and do whatever they can for the pandas.

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.

The Great!

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

the fact that their constant and passionate battle to save the giant panda has been recognized by major print and electronic media , and that contributions have seen a steady rise.

Ways to make it better...

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

find a way to raise substantial sums of money to add staff and provide even more necessary supplies to the panda centers.
