Big 5s

Suzanne Braden

Director/CEO, Pandas International

“My favourite animal to photograph and see in photos is the giant panda. Pandas radiate a cuteness above and beyond any other animal. Their big eyes hold an adorable, innocent, childlike expression. 

Although they are bears with big teeth and claws, they evoke in us the urge to want to hold and cuddle them. Humans can’t help but love the big round face, large eyes and roly-poly personalities. Ami Vitale perfectly captured their magnificence in the wild in her National Geographic photos.  Their delightful appearance is the reason they are a ‘Flagship’ or ‘Umbrella Species’, meaning any conservation efforts to save the Giant Pandas also help to save many other species, including flora and fauna. Being loving sweet creatures they are happy to help their fellow forest creatures.”
