What you can do

Help us continue this success story

Encouraged by the recent survey numbers and the increasing numbers of reserves and community development initiatives, WWF is confident, that with your help, we can ensure a future for pandas in the wild.
Here are a few ways that you can help us save the panda:

Donate

Your donation will have a positive effect for pandas, their environment and the local people.  

When you donate to WWF, you will be donating to conservation projects on the ground in China for the pandas. Your donation will help towards things such as:
  • Nature reserve protection, to ensure that the reserve borders are patrolled and no illegal hunting or logging takes place in the reserve.
  • Community development such as buying wood saving stoves for local people to limit the impact that wood-fuel harvesting is having on the forests.
  • Research and monitoring work, such as infrared cameras that are set up to record the movements of pandas in the Minshan and Qinling Mountains.

Travel smart

Panda tourism is on the rise. The Chinese government and WWF are now working on ways to reduce the impact of tourism on panda habitats.

There is a greater focus on eco-tourism. For more information on the best way to limit your impact, read our travel smart tips.
