I receive regular newsletters from Pandas International - they keep me updated on recent initiatives and news about their conservation efforts on behalf of the giant panda species. The people of this organization work very hard and are very passionate about their cause. In the aftermath of the 2008 earthquake that severely and irreparably damaged the giant panda breeding centre in Wolong, director Suzanne Braden promptly started collecting the supplies and equipment urgently needed to support rescue operations in Wolong and she personally delivered these to the centre, undertaking the risky and long journey by road to ensure continuity of the rescue and relocation efforts. No doubt, her presence at the breeding centre provided the staff with much needed emotional support as they ensured the safety of the giant pandas and assisted the centre's visitors who were there when the earthquake struck; they did this without regard for their own safety.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their commitment to keeping the public informed of their activities and accomplishments. Their newsletters really allow me to know where my contributions are making a difference.
