Double Your Donation
This #GivingTuesday, double your impact for red pandas and support RPN’s
expansion to Western Nepal and campaign to stop the illegal red panda trade.
Why Red Panda Network?
Red pandas are on the brink. The global red panda population has declined by 50% over the last 20 years and there may be as few as 2,500 remaining in the wild.
Red pandas are nearly extinct in their western range due to deforestation and illegal trade.
Here's our chance to save this endangered species. Thanks to Medway Charitable Trust, when you donate to Red Panda Network on #GivingTuesday your gift will be matched up to $5,000!
Your Gift Will Make A Difference
Red Panda Network (RPN) is the world leader in red panda conservation. We are working closely with local communities to develop conservation programs that help support their economic well-being, as well as preserve the environment. Our primary focus includes:
Research & Monitoring
Delivering usable data through status surveys, baseline studies, and community-based monitoring to inform conservation strategies.
Policy and Advocacy
Empowering local communities to preserve their forests and governments to adopt policies that protect red pandas and their habitat.
Working with local communities in establishing wildlife corridors and viable red panda populations.
Education and Outreach
Building awareness at local and global scales.
Providing alternatives to communities for promoting sustainable living and stewardship.
We Need To Act Now
Poaching rates are rising as the demand for red pandas among the black market pet trade continues to grow. Additionally, in Nepal, almost 70 percent of the total red panda habitat lies outside of protected areas.
Your gift will help us establish wildlife corridors and viable red panda populations as well as provide alternatives to communities for promoting sustainable living and stewardship. You will also be supporting the largest and most comprehensive effort to stop the illegal red panda trade.
There Is Hope
Thanks to supporters like you, RPN has established the world’s first protected area dedicated to red pandas in Eastern Nepal! Here red panda sightings are increasing and there has been a 65% reduction in trap/snare presence in patrolled areas since 2015! We are now expanding our community conservation model to critical unprotected habit in Western Nepal. Check out the video below for other RPN milestones!
