Contributions received from #IRPD2018 will support RPN’s largest and most comprehensive effort to stop the illegal red panda trade.
Red panda numbers are dwindling in Nepal as poaching and illegal trade is on the rise. The Wildlife Crime Control Bureau of Nepal state that 90% of the nation’s cases related to wildlife crime goes unreported.
Our mission is to reduce the supply and demand by:
1. Exposing the illegal red panda supply chain.
2. Educating the public on why red pandas must remain alive and wild and reduce the illegal trade demand.
