Policy of Effectivness
Pandas International strives to achieve its mission statement on a continuous basis. Annually the Board Members review the accomplishments of the past year, assess the results of those accomplishments, and determine their level of effectiveness in accomplishing our mission.
The Board also sets defined, measurable goals and objectives for the next calendar year in conjunction with the approval of the annual budget. The annual evaluation shall also identify and address deficiencies, successes, and impacts in all aspects of the foundation's program, including but not limited to finances, marketing, and the species' and their caretakers' needs.
Since part of our program is implemented at the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan Province, China, one of the foundation's goals is to do on- site inspections yearly. All Board members are volunteers who donate their time, expertise, and travel while serving Pandas International and when visiting panda reserve locations. Board members incur no expense to Pandas International on their annual site inspection visits.
Endangered means we have time Extinction is forever.
