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

I've enjoyed every encounter with Pandas International from buying T-shirts and other fund raising things to donating my drawing. I know what good work they do for Pandas. One example is the special milk formula they provide for the newborn Panda babies in China. Pandas International was first on the scene with medical supplies after the earthquake. This organization is GREAT!

Help more Pandas and save them from extinction.

I made 2 purses for the Pandas International Fund Raiser in February 2010. I talked with the people at the organization several times on the phone and by email. Each time they expressed their gratitude and how thrilled they were to have my donation items for the Silent Auction. I was glad to have the opportunity to make something that ended up raising needed funds to help the pandas in China. This was not the first time I donated. I consider Pandas International to be an honest and dedicated organization that actually makes a difference in helping the pandas in China. They have relationships with the Chinese Panda people and they work to provide all that they need to help the pandas there. To me, They are the

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fun, very informative on panda and related nature issues, honest, hard-working, and like-minded in love for pandas.

I think they are one of the best groups that help with preserving the wild pandas and helping to build up their numbers. They were one of the first on the scence after the 2008 earthquake with supplies and have done many other projects to help out on a daily basic. I know any donation I make to them is use wisely for the health of the pandas.

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

I have seen in their newsletters some of the wonderful things they have done for the pandas to have a better life.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Is the newsletters I get every month oh how all their projects are doing and on up coming events.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

they could do unbelieveable things to help the pandas and the world.

I cannot say enough good things about Pandas International and the good things they do for the pandas. When the earthquake devastated Sichuan, Suzanne Braden was there shortly afterwards with much needed supplies for the pandas and their keepers. They continue to provide vet supplies, infant formula, incubators, etc. I don't think that the recovery for the pandas and staff at the Wolong Panda Base from the earthquake devastation would have gone as well if Pandas International would not have stepped up the way they did.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the feedback that shows how the donations of supplies have really made a difference.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

further help with the conservation of wild pandas in the reserves in China.

I am a monthly donor to Pandas International. They are a wonderful non-profit with great integrity. They work diligently to support research, conservation, housing, medical care, and overall quality of life for the pandas of China, both in the wild and in the great Reserves and breeding centers. The founder, Suzanne Braden, is a hero for this critically endangered species. I am proud to support Pandas International.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful amount of information they share about what is going on in the world of pandas. The accomplishments, needs, and research. The educational value is amazing!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

one of a kind! So knowledgeable and grateful for the support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

truly help advance the study, conservation and education about pandas in China and around the world. And they would spend it wisely to get the most benefit.

Please help the Pandas! This organization is helping China ensure the survival of the species. They helped immensely after the earthquake in 08 and continue to keep us posted on the progress China is making.

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

reading updates on their website that are very detailed and make me feel connected to the programs in China and at the 4 zoos in the US that have Pandas.

Pandas International is a Colorado based organization that I am extremely proud to be a member and a donor with. This organization has helped with the survival of the Giant Panda and deserves to be recognized as one of the top non-profit groups in the world today. After the major earthquake a year ago that destroyed one of the Giant Panda reserves (Wolong) in China, Pandas International was one of the first organizations to provide shelter, food and badly needed supplies to the pandas and their keepers and handlers in order to maintain a healthy environment for all of them. I have been a donor and a member of Pandas International for over two years now and will always support them for the work and love that they continuously give to the cause of the conservation of such a beautiful species of animals. I came to know about Pandas International because of my love for the Giant Pandas and I have been able to go to an event live and meet with Suzanne Braden, one of the co-founders. Pandas International knows and recognizes the needs of the pandas and their handlers/keepers and sees to it that the babies get formula to grow big and strong and that the nurseries for these babies are well supplied with the equipment that is needed to provide the best care possible. I can't say enough about the work that has been done for the sake of the endangered Giant Pandas. God Bless them and the people who support what they do.

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

reading about how Pandas International has stepped in to help the cause of endangered Giant Pandas from reports coming out of China by independent sources. I know first hand the love and care that is given by PI's supporters.

I first heard about Pandas International when I became enamored of Tai Shan, the 1st surviving panda cub born at the National Zoo in Washington DC. Observing and falling in love with this baby panda fueled my desire to learn more about the species and their hard fought struggle to survive; approximately only 1600 pandas exist in the wild at this time. In my research, I discovered Pandas International and Suzanne Braden, the director of the organization. I was immediately impressed by her dedication and love for these beloved animals. Through Panda International's fundraising efforts and public relations and dissemination of information, funds are being raised to provide medical equipment/supplies, bamboo and formula for the cubs as well as any and all items required to facilitate the conservation and longevity of these amazing animals. I can't say enough wonderful things about Pandas International and their wonderful, caring staff.

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

the increased number of pandas cubs being born and surviving!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning and understanding more about Pandas and the sheer joy that I get by observing them

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help ensure that Pandas will be on our planet for future generations to come

When I volunteered at the Wolong Panda Research Center in China in 2006, I adopted a cub there. Since then I have been adopting 2 cubs per year through PI. The pandas desperately need help because, as everyone knows, they are highly endangered. PI was there when the severe earthquake struck Sichuan Province and destroyed the research center in 2008. They immediately sent supplies to help both the people of Wolong and the pandas who all had to be moved to a different facility quite far away. Suzanne Braden was there on the ground before the roads were even rebuilt and participated in the

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the care and love the people at Pandas International have for animals (especially pandas) and the people who care for them--and how quickly they respond to requests from donors. PI publishes an online newsletter and sends emails about all things pandas.
