Our Donor Trips
The funds we receive from our individual donors make it possible for Global Cause to provide essential support to our Giant Panda Reintroduction Project. Our Chinese partners pay for infrastructure and their own staffing, but they can’t cover everything our pandas need. Global Cause makes up the difference. We sponsor our world class scientific team, giving them grants to live on and paying their travel costs to China. We buy new GPS collars and provide other vital scientific supplies and equipment so our team can study our giant pandas and help them prepare to live successfully in the wild.
This project is only possible because we’re helped by people of all ages who care deeply about saving giant pandas in the wild. This is truly a team effort and we need all the help we can get.
We sometimes arrange special trips to China for larger donors so they can see our team working first hand with our pandas. Our first trip took place in March 2015. We’re organizing additonal trips for 2016 and 2017.
Our 2015 trip was a great success. Ten donors joined us on visits to Shanghai, Chengdu, Xi’an and Beijing. Each stop was fascinating, but the highlight of the trip came when they saw our pandas, Qian Qian and He Sheng, wearing the collars our donors had bought them and met with the rest of our panda team.
