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.
Testimonies from Panda Guardian members:
"I first heard of the Red Panda species only a few years ago in 2016. Immediately, their beauty captivated me and as an artist I often would create paintings or drawings of them in my spare time. The more that I researched about this unique species, the more I fell in love and realized how special they truly are. I wanted to make sure I contributed in some way to the preservation of these little guys, and for now the best way to do that is to contribute monthly. Even though the amount is small, I still feel that it is better than doing nothing while the Red Pandas need all of the help that they can get."
"I adopted a red panda and became a monthly donor because I fell in love with the species and learned very recently that they are highly endangered. I think red pandas are vital to the ecosystem in the foothills of the Himalayas, and because humans are most at blame for their recent plight, I feel we should do our best to ensure that they survive and thrive in the wild."
"I support the Red Panda Network because of their holistic approach to conservation, including on-ground research and monitoring, advocacy and education. I especially admire their community-based conservation model, harnessing the knowledge and passion of local people to protect and enhance red panda habitat, in turn improving the livelihoods of communities living in those areas. I can't imagine a world without red pandas, and I'm so grateful that organisations like the Red Panda Network are fighting to keep these beautiful and unique species in the wild."
