Give the gift of life for baby pandas who are rejected by their mother.
Twins are common in Giant Pandas; however, mother pandas can only care for one cub as they only have enough milk to feed one. In the wild, the stronger cub is selected. In addition, panda cubs are the smallest newborns in the bear species (about the size of a stick of butter) and are born blind and hairless making them very fragile and defenseless… but not alone.
Project Peril, a program of Greater Good Charities, is committed to the conservation and care of the Giant Panda, including helping provide vital formula to the rejected cubs of twin families. Once a cub has been rejected, it is moved to a nursery where it is placed in an incubator, bottle-fed and cared for at all times. The method of “cub swapping” then occurs where the cub in the nursery is swapped with its sibling who then spends a day in the nursery. This “swapping” continues to occur and allows both cubs to bond with their mother. Most often, the mother accepts both babies, just only one at a time.
Formula for panda cubs is imperative to their survival, however, it is costly. You can feed a baby panda rejected by its mother and ultimately aid in the conservation of the species. These efforts occur in the Giant Panda’s native habitats in China where the pandas are kept safe in reserves.
You can help. Just $2.75 feeds a panda for 1 day. You can save the life of a defenseless panda cub.
