PDXWildlife is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We have been operating since Sept. 1st, 2011. Our office is located in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. Our research focuses on threatened species, such as the giant panda and allows us to spend quite a bit of time in China, training interns, conducting innovative studies, and building international relations with fellow conservationists.
We believe that the world is rapidly changing, and not all species can evolve quickly enough to survive. PDXWildlife concentrates on using scientific research and advances to improve the conservation of species. We accomplish this through innovative and creative research in captive breeding, habitat restoration, and community education.
The main goals of our program are:
- Improve threatened species captive breeding techniques to increase reproductive success
- Monitor environmental contaminants that may be detrimental to species survivorship
- Educate individuals and communities to improve species and habitat conservation
Together, with the help of our sponsors, donors, collaborators and individuals around the globe, we are able to pursue these objectives through a dedicated team of scientists who conduct and implement research on three different continents.
