The First Panda

Why red pandas? Because they are the first panda!
Red pandas are not related to giant pandas and were
discovered 50 years earlier.
They are important indicators of the vibrant forests in the
Eastern Himalayas.
Red pandas are the only living member of their taxonomic family.

Red pandas are endangered—there may be as few as 2,500 remaining in the wild.
