Who Founded Pandas International?

Pandas International was founded in 2000 by Suzanne Braden and Diane Rees following a trip to China and a visit to the Panda Center. Both women left China knowing that the pandas needed help. Pandas International was formed to inform people about the plight of the pandas and to raise money to fund the Panda Centers in their attempt to preserve this magnificent species.
