Pandas International was founded in 2000 by Suzanne Braden and Diane Rees following a trip to China and a visit to the Panda Center. Both women left China knowing that the pandas needed help. Pandas International was formed to inform people about the plight of the pandas and to raise money to fund the Panda Centers in their attempt to preserve this magnificent species.
The mission of Pandas International, a non profit organization, registered in 2000, is to ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda by providing public awareness and education, research funding, habitat preservation and enhancement, and assistance to the China Conservation & Research Centers for the Giant Panda (CCRCGP).
Goals of Pandas International
Pandas International`s goals are to ensure that not one captive or wild panda is lost; that the species propagates and thrives; and, that their habitat is preserved in a responsible and sustainable manner.
The propagation and preservation of the Giant Panda will not only help ensure biodiversity, but will have a beneficial impact on the economic viability of the area through ecotourism, bamboo planting and harvesting by local villagers, and employment at the various Panda Centers in the region
