Give a gift that will help preserve this species for future generations
These red pandas live in the forests of eastern Nepal that are part of the Eastern Himalayan Broadleaf & Conifer Forest Ecoregion, one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Your symbolic adoption of one these pandas will go directly to the conservation of red pandas and to protecting this important region. Many other threatened species share habitat with red pandas and will also be protected including clouded leopards, Himalayan black bears, as well as hundreds of bird species. For each adoption you will receive a personalized adoption certificate and adoption package. You will also become a member of Red Panda Network where you will receive regular updates on our work and a subscription to the Red Panda Network Newsletter.
