Global Cause is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on saving giant pandas in the wild. In 2008, we began working with the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding (CRB) in China on an innovative plan to strengthen the wild panda population. The project science team seeks to reintroduce captive-born pandas successfully to their natural habitat and continue to study them there as they live in the wild.
“That’s the whole point of this project is to get pandas that are born from captive-born mothers and born in a human care facility and then get them to transition out into the wild.”
"The goal is to boost the wild panda population, which has dipped below 2,000 bears as development encroaches on their habitat. To avoid further losses, and to ensure there is enough room to accommodate the influx of artificially bred animals, the Chinese government has established nature preserves."
