Adopt a Panda

Red pandas are almost extinct in the western portion of their range.

We are working to stop illegal poaching and the destruction of their habitat in Nepal, and developing partnerships in India and China. Help us continue our work by sponsoring a forest guardian or by symbolically adopting one of the beautiful red panda found in our work area.

Give the gift of life for only 50 dollars a year or 5 dollars a month!

For each adoption you will receive:

  • Information on your adopted red panda
  • Desktop wallpaper featuring our favorite picture and the name of your adopted red panda
  • Personalized adoption certificate
  • e-card of your red panda to send to your friends and family
  • Membership to Red Panda Network including regular updates on our work and a subscription to the Red Panda Network Newsletter

Tenzing (male)


My name comes from the famous Nepalese climber, Tenzing Norgay, who was the first to summit Mt. Everest. I live in the mid-hills of the Kanchenjunga Mountains that also serves as home to villages that depend on my forests in order to survive, either using the wood for their stoves or clearing the understory.

Niyati (female)


My mother is Sita and my father is Bhim. I live in the Surke forest of Ilam district in eastern Nepal. I have had to adapt to the increasing development of this region as tea production has become a major use of land in the area.
