The global red panda population has declined by 50% over the last 20 years. There may be as few as 2,500 remaining in the wild and they are nearly extinct in their western range due to deforestation and illegal trade.

But Red Panda Network is fighting back.

We are the world leader in red panda conservation. Since 2007, we have been working with local communities to serve as active partners in the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat.

    • Established the PIT Red Panda Protected Forest in Eastern Nepal: the world’s first protected area dedicated to red pandas.
    • Expanded our community-based model in Western Nepal—where red pandas are unprotected and facing extinction.
    • Launched the largest and most comprehensive effort to stop the illegal red panda trade.
Check out some of our other achievements in this animated video.

Your support will help secure a sustainable future for red pandas, and the people and wildlife who share their home.

Our continued success relies on the generous support of people like you.
