• 5 Ways You Can Celebrate Earth Day 2020 and Save Red Pandas during Quarantine

    Red pandas may thrive in solitude but many of us are likely feeling the restlessness that comes with shelter-in-place. Here are 5 ways you can create change from the comfort of your own home!

    1. Become a Red Panda Ranger!
    Looking for something fun and educational to do with your child at home? Join RPN Ranger "Charu" on her mission to raise red panda awareness!

    A Red Panda Ranger is a special title given to children who help spread the word about red pandas. To become a Red Panda Ranger your child will “climb” five mountains by completing the activities for each mountain. Every time they complete a level your child will receive an official badge and after they complete all five levels your child will receive a personalized certificate and will officially be a Red Panda Ranger!

    2. Educate and Advocate
    Sharing the message that red pandas not only exist but are unique, important and endangeredand are not pets — is critical right now. The popularity of this species is growing and lots of people are probably aware of how cute red pandas are, but they might not know how urgent it is to fight for their conservation!

    Raising awareness, remotely, has never been easier with social media and we have lots of shareable resources for you to share with your friends!

    Also, we have exciting news; your support doesn't have to stop at outreach! Even in quarantine, you can make a massive impact by joining our team of advocates and raising funds for red panda conservation.
    You can also quickly create a fundraiser on Facebook!

    Birthday coming up? Have your very own panda party!

    Please share with your friends!

    3. Make a Gift in Honor of Earth Day
    We are looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with you. This year's theme is 'climatic action' which feels so important:

    "The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary."

    The Eastern Himalayan forests where red pandas live are the lungs of South Asia. As a flagship and umbrella species, red panda conservation helps to protect this biodiverse ecoregion and combat global climate change.
