Unique, Important & Endangered

Red pandas are incredible—there's no creature like them!
They are not related to giant pandas and were discovered 50 years earlier.
Red pandas are the only living member of their taxonomic family.
They are a flagship species and an important indicator of the
Eastern Himalayan forests.

There may be as few as 2,500 red pandas remaining in the wild. Red Panda Network is committed to saving them. 

Here's how:

The PIT Red Panda Protected Forest

We are establishing the world's first protected area dedicated to red panda!

Stop the Illegal Red Panda Trade

We work to stop poaching, trafficking and buying of red pandas.

Center for Conservation and Sustainable Living

A center committed to alleviating poverty and ensuring a sustainable future for people and red pandas.

Half of the cost of Thomas Broadbent's limited-edition “The Envelope” print will go directly to the conservation of these species!

Panda Guardians are a dedicated team of donors whose monthly gifts are supporting sustainable livelihoods of over 2,000 families in Nepal!

Red Panda Governance Survey / रेड पाण्डा संरक्षणको लागि सुशासन सर्भेक्षण

Griffith University, Red Panda Network, and others would like to invite you to take part in a short internet-based questionnaire to help with a research project.

This research is about the governance of Red Panda conservation programmes, natural habitat protection and the Red Panda Network. ‘Governance’ is defined as the way in which activities are managed, or coordinated.

The intention of the project is to work with stakeholders in Nepal to develop standards to ensure Red Panda conservation, natural habitat protection and the Red Panda Network work well for all forest users. It is hoped these standards can be applied in other Red Panda countries, to make Red Panda conservation programmes, natural habitat protection and the Red Panda Network more effective for all stakeholders.
