So you want to become a Panda Ambassador?
Well, the great news is there are no forms to fill out, no groups to join or money to hand over!
Panda Ambassadors spread the news about the plight of the Giant Panda to people everywhere. That's right - all you have to do is talk with your friends and family about Giant Panda conservation! Pretty simple, right?
You can give as much time, money or effort as you like, but the more passionate you are, the better the outlook for all the animals that share Giant Panda habitat.
Other Actions for Panda Ambassadors
- Get involved in our other Panda conservation activities, such as becoming a zoo member, holding a panda party or supporting sustainable livelihoods in China.
- Get a group of friends together to visit Wang Wang and Funi at the Adelaide Zoo. Not only will seeing these amazing animals up close help raise awareness amongst your friends, but your entrance fees go toward helping to conserve Pandas.
- Subscribe to our website to receive e-newletters about Giant Panda
- Start a panda club at your school or within your community - after all, a team of Panda Ambassadors can do a lot more than an individual!
- Take the message about Panda conservation to the streets by handing out flyers to people.
- Petition your local council, schools or libraries for their support in bringing issues about Panda conservation to light, and make information easily available to the whole community.
- Hold fundraisers, such as a bake sale at your school, a community sausage sizzle, a movie night or a car wash.
- If you grow bamboo or know anyone who does you can donate it to the Adelaide Zoo for Wang Wang and Funi. This will help them stay healthy and strong so they can breed and help to slowly increase Panda populations.
- Instead of buying gifts for your friends birthdays make donations to Panda organisations in their name, or buy them panda gifts from the Adelaide Zoo or Pandas International, the proceeds of which all go towards Panda conservation, and of course, ask them to do the same for you.
- If you are a student, ask your teacher to do a class project about pandas.
- Today there are as few as 1600 Giant Pandas surviving in the wild. This is mostly due to habitat loss.
- Giant Pandas eat up to 20kgs of bamboo each day. This means they need an abundance of bamboo to be healthy.
- Reliance on bamboo makes them very vulnerable to habitat loss.
- We can all help save Giant Panda habitat!
