Forest Guardians

We have currently 36 Forest Guardians from 18 Village Development Communities (VDCs) working in 25 Community Forests. Forest Guardians are the key to the future of red panda. They mobilize the community into action to preserve their forest biodiversity and red panda.

These special people work in their respective communities to inspire the creation of a community forest networks that are empowered to take control of their forests. They monitor treacherous red panda habitat monthly in order to collect important baseline data that enables us to monitor our conservation efforts. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Just before 2 years ago, I was returning home from “Goth”. I suddenly met with Giant Black Bear. I get frightened and started to scream and cry. I ran away to behind the bushes and hidden until the bear left my area. That was my most frightening day.
