I have always loved Giant Pandas but it wasn't until Tai Shan was born at the Smithsonian National Zoo and I fell in love with him and his parents that I started to learn about just how endangered Giant Pandas are. From there I learned about Pandas International and about all the great work they do and their many accomplishments. Their motto is:
"Endangered means we have time
Extinction is Forever!"
I was so inspired by their efforts that I took a trip to China, organized by Pandas International, in September 2010 to get to see them in action as well as meet a great many pandas - and of course visit Tai Shan who now lives in China. I have also gotten involved with various fundraisers to support their efforts.
Suzanne Braden, the director of Pandas International, and her staff are both very knowledgeable and passionate about saving our beloved Giant Pandas. Suzanne's efforts are a good example of how a charity does it right and makes a difference in this world. Suzanne and Pandas International have inspired many people to join the cause to ensure that extinction and Giant Pandas are never used together - ever.

I have watched as Pandas International has made great strides in spreading the word that Giant Pandas need lots of financial support so ensure that they will be around for a very long time. I read about their efforts, on the ground in China, right after the 2008 earthquake that was incredibly devastating. Their efforts have supported purchasing milk and supplies for newborn baby pandas as well as helping to repopulate the land in China with more bamboo (that was cleared out for future building sites.
