Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal-Related, Animals, Protection of Endangered Species, Veterinary Services, Wildlife Sanctuaries

Mission: The mission of Pandas International is to ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda. By providing public awareness and education, support for research, habitat preservation and enhancement, and assistance to the Giant Panda Centers in China. The Giant panda is one of the most delightful and captivating of animals, yet one of the most endangered species in the world. The best scientific estimates place the number at only approximately 1,600.

Results: Great Green Project- Pandas International has embarked on a bamboo replanting project to mitigate the disastrous effects of the 2008 earthquake on the Giant Pandas’ primary food source, and, to replenish bamboo lost as a result of floods, landslides and unusually heavy snows during the years following the earthquake. Pandas International is committed to a sustainable approach for providing food, shelter and safe migration corridors for the Giant Panda as part of its belief that without sustainable habitats and a plentiful food supply, the opportunities for achieving its mission will be dramatically diminished. Pandas International also provides annually a special formula to the panda nursery’s for the young cubs. We also send medicines and vaccines, medical equipment, veterinary supplies, and provide advanced training for staff.

Programs: Direct Suport of the Panda Centers at Wolong and Bifengxia

Pandas International is the most effective grassroots organization I've ever seen! They work tirelessly to assess not only the long-term needs for conserving the giant panda, but also the short-term needs including emergencies. With firmly established relationships with researchers and caregivers in China (and throughout the world), Pandas International supports the care, breeding, reintroduction, and rescue of pandas, along with habitat conservation.

Just read the monthly newsletter and so pleased with how they contribute to the health and welfare of such an endangered animal. The Executive Director always pays her own way when traveling to China to take important medical items and check on various panda reserves. And children adore raising money to donate towards the care of such a cute bear and learning about it.

For nearly 8 years I've had the opportunity to raise not only funds but increase the level of care for endangered pandas and also the level of equipment and training needed for their healthy survival. A major

We have been involved with supporting Pandas Inter. for many years. We have been impressed by the following things. First, the targeted support for Panda recovery and breeding is quite extraordinary. From incubators to baby formula. Second, the quick response to provide immediate support for the center and its staff who were impacted by the earthquake. Third, the development of strong trust and working relationships with the Chinese government - not an easy government to work with. And, finally, the superb public education program that Pandas provides. All combine to make Pandas our number one nonprofit to provide resources and support. Dick and Peg Brown, Colorado

Have always loved all type of bears and in 2005 I totally fell in love with Tai Shan;the Giant Panda cub born in DC. Through my love of Tai Shan I found many other people of like mind and found Pandas International. Suzanne, Andrea and the entire staff are relentless where it comes to saving the Giant Panda and their habitit. From the re-planting of trees and bamboo, formula for the cubbies, medicine, equipment etc etc etc thru fund raising. Through PI's efforts in bringing the Giant Panda's home back to them, also brings back the home to those who share bamboo forest for example the Red Panda, the Floral, the Golden Lion Taminan.

There is no way to put into words the selfless efforts that PI puts forth for the Giant Pandas.
As a donor, fund raiser and what I consider a colleague - there is no greater passion than that of PI.
They have enlightened the world about the bears, which is China's National Symbol. PI has enriched the Pandas like no other organization has. My deep established relationship will bring many more years of fund raising and working together.

I have been fundraising with Pandas International for several years. They are nothing short of amazing! They have done an incredible amount of tireless work for the pandas, giving of their own free time and finances. My fundraising proceeds are guaranteed to go the pandas in China, unlike the zoo's. The PI staff continuously goes over and above on a daily basis. Not only for the pandas, but also for the donors. I look forward to many more years of working together with them.

Having been associated with Pandas International for the past few years, we couldn't find a better non-profit organization who is 100% dedicated to the preservation of this remarkable species. They have always been quick to respond to any crisis. We appreciate all the numerous things you do and will continue to support all your efforts.

This is my ninth year as a giant panda adopter through Pandas International. After adopting Feng Yi in 2006, I adopted two other pandas, also through PI - Gong Zhu in 2008 and Gong Gong, Feng Yi's son, in 2013.

Through PI, I've also volunteered at both Wolong and Bifengxia, beginning in 2007. I've worked with the keepers at both bases, and saw for myself the dedication of the keepers and the vets.

I've also attended the annual Hug My Baby gathering since 2010 and met Suzanne and her team - regular people who are highly dedicated and hardworking, not just names at the end of regular email messages from PI.

I am proud to be an adopter and volunteer through Pandas International. Keep up the good work, Suzanne, Andrea and Tanja!

I have been a donor to PI since 2008, and have since adopted 2 pandas One in 2010 and the other at the end of last year.

I have been to "Hug my baby" twice and met with Suzanna and other members of her team. They were always helpful, fun and passionate about pandas. The officials from CCRCGP were highly appreciative of what Pandas International did for them.

I'm proud to be an adopter and donor with Pandas International.
