Pandas International is a US based charity working to help support panda conservation in China. There are about 1,600 pandas left in the wild. Their habitat is being destroyed by people, but their food supply has also been hard hit by natural events such as the 2008 earthquake, which destroyed a lot of their bamboo. Their sexual appetites don't help: the female panda can only get pregnant in a 36-48 hour window once a year.
But nonetheless, pandas are just adorable. Pandas International has some wonderful videos and footage and photos on their website, including pandas at play in the kindergarden.
You can adopt a panda for the panda lover in your life from the UK gift experience company Buy a Gift and your gift will support the work Pandas International is doing to support panda conservation.
This gift allows you to adopt your very own cute and cuddly Panda - supporting Pandas International and making a real difference to their future survival. The gift tin includes lots of panda information, a colour poster and easy-to-follow instructions on how to register your 12 month adoption. Once registered, you'll also receive a personalised supporter certificate, a photograph of your panda as well as regular newsletters.
