Help Save the Giant Panda from Extinction
In China’s Han dynasty, the giant panda was a highly-praised animal—they were believed to have mystical powers. But even without powers, giant pandas are very special since they belong to an umbrella species.
Umbrella species are those that live in a large, shared habitat with other animals, whose protection results in a domino effect for other important species. Within the panda habitat, there are 14 mammals, 20 birds and 82 amphibians that would benefit through the conservation of the giant panda.
Today, the giant panda’s home is being endangered by a dramatic increase in the human population. Pandas rely on reserves to protect their natural habitat and allow them a safe area to prosper.
Project Peril, a program of Greater Good Charities, is committed to the conservation and care of the giant panda. Through our program, we are planting different varieties of bamboo in this habitat to provide pandas the food they need to survive. It only costs $0.18 cents to plant bamboo per square foot. This includes the costs of seeds, planting and maintaining the bamboo.
You can help. Just $10 can save the giant panda. Your donation will not only protect the giant panda, but also protect the one-hundred and sixteen other species that live in their habitat.
