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

I had been involve with this organization and they had done a tremendous job of the awareness of the Pandas situation. The organization raises funds to save the panadas and help with the reserve in China and also working to make sure that people understand the Pandas can be extinct if nothing is being done. A great foundation for helping the Pandas. I will highly recommend this organization.

I've been an avid panda fan since 1980. I visited Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing at Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, DC and wanted to learn all I could about panda bears. At the time, I relied on National Geographic magazines and TV shows. I knew they were in trouble and needed help to survive. When Pandas International came along, I knew we had hope. I have been a proud supporter of this organization for many years. Knowing the money I donate goes directly to the pandas means a lot. They do incredible work.

I have been supporting Pandas International for more than ten years ever since I fell madly in love with a pink hairless squealing little cub named Tai Shan. They do a excellent job in educating people about Giant Pandas and why we need to make sure they survive into the future. PI provides much needed services like vaccines and formula for newborns and works with the Chinese in doing whatever is needed to help. Everyone at PI is so dedicated to Giant Pandas and and know they pure joy they bring. The world needs more happy and Giant Pandas equal happy.

I found Suzanne Braden’s passion and commitment towards conservation of the giant panda inspiring….so inspiring I wanted to make an immediate difference and volunteered to serve on the Board of Directors.

I proudly serve on the board of directors and look forward to continued support of the P/I mission. From my experience I first hand see how Pandas International puts all donations to effective use supporting giant panda conservation.

I found that helping make decisions on how we support the pandas both directly and indirectly truly inspiring. I’ve been to China twice to volunteer at Bifengxia Panda Reserve and am looking forward to my next visit. I find that caring for the pandas, hand carrying supplies to the reserve and helping the reserve staff fulfilling….I’ve adopted a cub and will continue to support her over the coming years.

We've supported Pandas International for several years. The staff and Board are dedicated to helping Giant Pandas which are facing extinction in the wild. PI supports equipment, science, education, and general operating costs for Panda centers in China. Every year special collections are taken to assist with things like providing baby formula, for special equipment (i.e. incubators), and to encourage bamboo growth. When the WuLong panda center was destroyed by earthquakes, mudslides and flooding, PI was there to help move the pandas, help the staff and find new opportunities to continue the work so pandas can survive.

I have been on the board of Pandas International since 2002 and I can tell you the director Suzanne Braden goes above and beyond the call of Director for a board. She devotes her time and resources to ensuring that the adorable bear the world so loves continues to thrive. It is a true honor to be apart of a non-profit that really does what it says and as time has shown every donation and all your support can and does make a difference to the panda population-yes, improved, but still critically low populations. Please give generously and as often as you can share our mission.
Thank you,
Stephanie Moss

As with all efforts-we work hard-but never hard enough when time is so precious and an animal as unique and special as the panda is so limited...therefore I am honored to still be a part of Pandas International, an organization that gives, gives and gives to ensure this amazing animal does not become extinct. The amount of time and energy Andrea and Suzanne who are the backbone of Pandas International put in have made a difference in the pandas' future so that the next generation of humans will get to enjoy the pandas adorability factor and very special part in our precious ecosystem. As always, all support, time and money are valuable to continuing the efforts and ensuring the future of the panda so thank you all who so generously give!

Pandas International is totally focused on getting support such as baby formula, vaccines, and medical equipment, via donations, to the giant pandas and their conservators--not only in China, but in breeding programs around the world.

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.
