INTERNATIONAL SNOW LEOPARD TRUST
September 19, 2014

The Snow Leopard Trust is an amazing organization that works to save snow leopards in the wild. They work with the local communities to establish conservation programs to help save the snow leopards as well as the people who share the land with these beautiful animals. They have education programs to teach the people, young and old, about conservation and living together in harmony with snow leopards. The Snow Leopard Trust also sells products hand made by local people so that can support themselves and their families. I have purchased numerous products over the years and will continue to support this great nonprofit organization. Check out their website to learn more about snow leopards and see some of the awesome camera trap photos that they have of snow leopards out in the wild.

INTERNATIONAL SNOW LEOPARD TRUST
April 13, 2011

We have supported the Snow Leopard Trust for a couple of years - as soon as I first learned about this wonderful organization. They not only provide important research about the snow leopards in the wild, but also work with the local people to educate them and develop conservation programs to help save the snow leopards. I have adopted snow leopards through the program and purchased handcrafted items made by the local people. This past year, I received a Snow Leopard Trap Camera adoption for Christmas and it is absolutely amazing to see the images recorded by the camera. I had a couple of questions about the images and received a quick response. This is a wonderful charity to support.

The Great!

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

I am a volunteer interpreter at a zoo that has a snow leopard. Although our snow leopard is in a captive environment, she is the ambassador for snow leopards in the wild. I share the information that I have learned through the Snow Leopard Trust with our guests to educate them about the conservation efforts and programs aimed to save the snow leopards in the wild. Education is key to raising awareness of the plight of these beautiful cats.

Ways to make it better...

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

Ask them to come to the East coast (Boston) to help spread the word about the charity and their mission. Have a Web chat every few months

PANTHERA
March 31, 2011

Panthera is a wonderful organization that I have supported for about a year - ever since I read about them and their mission to save the wild cats. Although I am not a scientist or researcher, I have a keen interest in big cats and have found the best and most trustworthy information from the Panthera experts who have actually been out in the field. Their field programs not only deal with researching and saving the big cats, but also educating and working with the local people who live side by side with the big cats. I'm an interpreter at a zoo and I, along with every zoo keeper and zoo volunteer that I know, would rather see the animals out in the wild. However, I use Panthera's information about their programs and their expert big cat knowledge to educate the people who I talk with when I stand by the big cat exhibits. I can go on and on about the wonderful books, videos, documentaries and photos that can be found via the Panthera website, but I think you get the idea of what a great organization they are.

Big Cat Rescue, Corp.
May 8, 2010

I heard about Big Cat Rescue and after reading about them on their website, I knew I had to visit (even though I live in NH). Initially I sent a few emails with some questions that I had and they responded promptly with the answers. I went on 3 different tours when we were in Tampa in April 2010. The tours were great and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It was so nice to see that these cats which had been abused, neglected or born into the pet-trade, were now living out their lives peacefully at Big Cat Rescue. I saw first hand how much the staff loves these animals and how much they take care not to stress out those animals that are not comfortable with the tour groups. This is a special place and it is on the top of my list to visit when we go back to Florida next year.

The Great!

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

seeing in person the love that they have for each and every one of their animals and what wonderful homes these animals now live in.

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

helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

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

take in additional animals that continue to be neglected, abused and used for the pet trade.

PANDAS INTERNATIONAL
April 15, 2010

My first experience with Pandas International was 2 1/2 years ago when I booked a trip to China and I had a couple of questions about the Bifengxia Panda Research Center. Although I was not yet a donor, I emailed them and Suzanne Braden responded within a day. I was impressed that she took the time to answer my questions and respond so quickly. To this day, I receive prompt responses to any email correspondence that I have with them. After my initial contact with Suzanne Braden, I looked further into Pandas International and found out that they are such a very important part of the effort to save the giant panda. They work closely with the Bifengxia base and provide medical supplies and equipment, as well as formula for the cubs and donations to plant more bamboo for this wonderful species. When I returned from my trip to China, I adopted a panda named Xin Ni Er through Pandas International. They send me updates and pictures of her on a regular basis. I have ordered items from them many times (one can never have too many panda items) and I always receive them promptly and without any issues.
