I have been working with giant pandas for over 17 years, and have enjoyed every minute of it! I am very proud of the approach we have taken in order to maximize the conservation value of all our research. It has also been very exciting to expand our research, using this same approach, with other bear species. By building bridges between zoo and field research, we make the most of any opportunity we have to learn about pandas and other bears, and what they need to survive long into the future.

Wildlife is endangered, but there is hope. You can help us save species today.
