Our chosen charity is the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Foundation.
In the words of the charity:
To provide funds for the conservation, breeding and research of endangered and rare species like the giant panda, so as to improve the in-situ and ex-situ conservation of these species and promote the sustainable development of wild species.
Set up in 1987, Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Foundation is an independent non-profit legal entity dedicated to the in-situ and ex-situ conservation of the giant panda and other endangered species.
Since its establishment, the foundation has collected social donations through various channels for eight major types of programs:
Every year, we allocate a significant portion of our resources towards public education and information, with the intention of building a cancer-smart community. Our public education campaigns "Giant Panda Keeper Program" and"Panda Class " are very popular and help to boost public awareness of giant panda conservation and environment protection.
The institutes supported by the Foundation have made significant achievements in scientific research and wildlife conservation. For example, Chengdu Panda Base now has the largest artificial population in the world and has become a world-famous organisation.
The foundation’s development is dependent upon the constant care and support of the public and society. We’d like to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support for the cause of the conservation of giant pandas and other rare and endangered wild animals.
