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 have volunteered with Pandas International for many year. The goals and objectives are clear and I know my work and money is going to a good cause. I love all of the educational packets and events that raise money for a worthy cause.

I have been supporting Pandas International (PI) for over 10 years as a volunteer, donor and adopter (I am the proud adopter of two Giant Pandas) and now a board member. I could never have imagined how deeply passionate I would become about conserving and preserving these magnificent bears and that passion is due in large part to PI. I have watched how this truly great non-profit has been able to accomplish so much with a staff of two people in the basement of the Director’s home and I have traveled to China seven times with PI and their Director, Suzanne Braden, witnessing firsthand what PI does and how “our” donations are put to work. Each trip has been truly memorable, humbling, exciting and always an adventure. But most importantly, each trip has afforded me the chance to watch the progress being made to help conserve Giant Pandas through a long lasting partnership between the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas and PI. There is a trust and a mutual repect that is awe inspiring. And I have met Chinese doctors, scientists, and keepers who could not be more grateful for or humbled by all that PI does to support their efforts to constantly strive to learn more about how to help giant pandas now and in the future.

From all that I have seen and heard and from all the people I have met, I continue to highly recommend this truly great non-profit to anyone interested in supporting our beloved Giant Pandas. Pandas International gives 100% to every project they undertake and the “return on investment” from every donation is priceless. Many thanks to PI for all of their hard work and dedication and for giving me the opportunity to be a part of their efforts to support our beloved Giant Panda Bears.

I fell in love with my first Giant Panda in 2005. That is when Tai Shan was born at the Smithsonian National Zoo. It was also at that time that I learned about Pandas International (PI) and I have been working with them ever since as a volunteer, donor and adopter (I am the proud adopter of two Giant Pandas). I could never have imagined how deeply passionate I would become about conserving and preserving these magnificent bears and that passion is due in large part to PI. I started out as a volunteer, helping with fundraising and providing articles of interest to help educate people about just why pandas are so critically endangered. But that wasn’t enough because I watched how this truly great non-profit was able to accomplish so much with a staff of three people in the basement of the Director’s home and I wanted to do more. Over the past nine years I have traveled to China with PI and their Director, Suzanne Braden, and I’ve seen firsthand just exactly what PI does and how “our” donations are put to work. I saw urgently needed medical equipment that had been donated as well as baby formula, medicine, computer software and so much more. And I have met Chinese doctors, scientists, and keepers who could not be more grateful or humbled by all that PI does to support their efforts to learn more about how to help giant pandas now and in the future. From all that I have seen and heard and from all the people I have met, I can highly recommend this truly great non-profit to anyone interested in supporting our beloved Giant Pandas.

We have been involved with this charity since it's inception and they have had the same goal throughout all these years- to help save the Giant Panda from extinction. The folks that run Pandas International give and work tirelessly to raise money and awareness to help this great animal.

I have loved pandas for many, many years, and am excited to read about the efforts to preserve them from extinction. I recently discovered that Pandas International's office is located here in Denver, Colorado, and am amazed at what they do for the pandas and the conservation centers in China who are so dedicated to caring for the pandas. A few years ago, my husband and I was thrilled to join a "Panda Lovers" tour to China, coordinated by a Pandas International Board Member. Working with the pandas for a couple of days was a thrill beyond belief. It is an honor to be a volunteer for Pandas International, and working with the dedicated staff. As Pandas International states, "Endangered Means we have Time, Extinction is Forever."

I volunteer with Pandas International and can’t think of an organization more dedicated to saving a species. They provide critically needed supplies, medications and vaccinations to the panda bases. It is my honor to serve as a volunteer with this organization.

Panda's International is an organization absolutely passionate about and dedicated to the pandas. I have been involved with PI since 2008. The work they do is tremendous--raising funds, getting supplies to the pandas, working with the pandas, spreading the word, and educating us about the pandas and the work needed to keep the pandas going. Suzanne is amazing with her staff, the board, and the volunteers and donors ensuring support for these great animals. I look forward to the monthly newsletters and to the annual dinner event to stay connected to the progress of the pandas. Kudos to PI for their dedication to the pandas.

Panda's International is a wonderful organization working to keep pandas in the world. They have done so much for the pandas from providing formula and incubators for the babies to providing food and shelter and programs to reintroduce pandas back into the wild. The dedication of the executive director and the board to the pandas is inspirational.

I've been involved since it's inception and have volunteered every year at most events. While most people are just thinking of themselves these days, this organization gives all it can to save an endangered animal species.

Pandas International has been instrumental in providing much needed support for the raising, protection and conservation of giant pandas. Among other things, they have helped with providing special milk formula for new born pandas, incubators in which to raise orphan new born pandas, educational displays at the research center, planting bamboo for pandas in the nature reserve.

I know first hand how much the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda and other wildlife rescue centers have benefitted and appreciate the support of Pandas International.
