Red Panda Network
The Red Panda Network is committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat through the education and empowerment of local communities.
Annual donations to help sponsor a forest guardian to monitor and protect red panda habitat, as well as educate communities on the importance of the red panda.
It was agreed that this conservation goal was to be achieved by supporting the work of the Red Panda Network, an organisation that uses community conservation to protect red pandas in Nepal. This is a win-win situation; it brings employment to remote villages, it protects the local community forests that have no state protection, it makes people proud of their natural heritage, it raises awareness and it provides good information on the status of the pandas.
This community-based red panda conservation programme has been extended throughout all 27 Village Development Committees (VDCs) within red panda.
