Symbolic Panda Adoption
Adopting a panda is a fun and easy way to have a direct impact on the daily life and care of our beloved pandas. While it is a symbolic adoption (actual pandas have to stay in the panda centers in China) it is a meaningful way to help panda conservation. Remember, adoptions are also a great gift for the panda or wildlife lover in your life, and a great way to introduce children to panda conservation.
For adoptions at the $50.00 level or higher- If the adoption is for a child we will send a FREE Pennies 4 Pandas- panda protector kit, including a bucket, a pennies4pandas pin, a Pandas International pin, brochure, and car magnet-please put “panda protector kit” in the blank box below the donation amount or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org after you place your donation.
The cost to care for a panda for one year is approximately $10,000. Your support provides critical funds for the pandas at the CCRCGP centers at Hetaoping, Shenshuping, Dujiangyan, Bifengxia as well as the SWARC center at Louguantai. Your symbolic adoption donation helps to cover the costs of veterinary care, medicine and vitamins, the pandas’ daily meals (panda bread, carrots, apples, and lots of bamboo!), formula for the cubs and the cost of the pandas’ caretaker staff. It is a wonderful way to give the pandas everything they need to thrive!
