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.


When you donate to WWF, you will be donating to panda conservation projects on the ground in China. Your donation will contribute towards a variety of initiatives, including:
  • Nature reserve protection to ensure that the reserve borders are patrolled and no illegal hunting or logging takes place inside them
  • Community development projects such as providing wood saving stoves to limit the impact of wood-fuel harvesting on the panda's forests.
  • Research and monitoring work, such as setting up infrared cameras to record panda movements 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, by promoting eco-tourism.
