San Diego, CA, May 20, 2014 --(PR.com)-- YANUA International, presenters of the Saving Pandas™ mobile game app and an advocate of giant panda conservation, today announced its plans to raise $10,000 for the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy, which is dedicated to bringing endangered species back from the brink of extinction and protecting wildlife and habitats around the world. For every download of Saving Pandas through June 4, 2014, YANUA will donate $1 to the Wildlife Conservancy. To further awareness, the game app will be showcased during Memorial Day weekend at a live event at the San Diego Zoo, giving panda lovers and zoo-goers a hands-on experience with a mobile game where players rescue baby pandas from evil space aliens in a series of twists and turns. The Saving Pandas mobile game was launched by YANUA in collaboration with China’s Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.
