"In 1999, after a trip to China and the Wolong Panda Center, the plight of the Giant Panda made such a dramatic impression on Suzanne Braden and Diane Rees that upon returning to the United States, they co-founded Pandas International, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, to help save this magnificent animal. Unlike other organizations which serve many animals, Pandas International is exclusively devoted to the Giant Panda.
Pandas International works directly to support the Panda Reserves in China to ensure the survival of the species. The Reserves focus on captive breeding, habitat restoration, veterinary care for captive and wild pandas, and extensive research on nutrition, behavior, breeding, and ecological needs. A program to re-introduce captive born pandas into the wild has also been initiated and is being expanded. This transitional step will be a gradual, but essential process to increase the number of Pandas in the wild bamboo forests of China."
The Giant Panda is considered a national treasure in China and has no natural predators. These endearing bears have still become endangered and have become a worldwide symbol of conservation. Habitat loss, illegal poaching & deforestation have all contributed to making the Giant Panda at risk of extinction. We must act to save these magnificent & lovable bears - help us save the pandas and raise awareness of the need to do something. We can all make a difference!
