SAVE THE RED PANDAS
Red pandas are unique, important and endangered. They are the only species of their kind and are ambassadors for a landscape that supports over 500 million people; nearly 10% of the global human population. Unfortunately, there may be as few as 2,500 red pandas remaining in the wild.
The red panda is the original panda, discovered some 50 years before the giant panda! They are a carnivore that has adapted to eating almost exclusively bamboo.
Red pandas are the only species remaining in their taxonomic family — a living relict of the past. Saving them is important to the preservation of the world’s natural heritage and global biodiversity.
Since 2007, they’ve been leading the fight in Nepal to protect red pandas. Their work focuses on creating a community-protected forest corridor that allows people and red pandas to live together in harmony, keeping red pandas safe and encouraging people to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. You can find out more about their work by visiting their website, as well as information about how red panda conservation can help the planet.
