Sponsor a Forest Guardian

Introducing the Red Panda Network Forest Guardians

FG's of Ilam

Support a Forest Guardian, their family, and the preservation of red pandas and their habitat for $30 a month or $360 a year.

Red Panda Network has been expanding our red panda monitoring and conservation area to include 54 Forest Guardians from 27 Village Development Communities (VDCs), working in 35 Community Forests and 4 National Forests. But this number needs to continue to grow in order to protect red pandas and their habitat from threats such as deforestation and illegal poaching.

Why Sponsor a Red Panda Network Forest Guardian?

Forest Guardians are the key to the future of red panda: they mobilize the community into action in preserving the biodiversity of local forests.

Forest Guardians work within their respective communities to create a Community Forest Network, which empowers local people to protect their forests. They monitor and protect red panda habitat, as well as educate their communities about the importance of the red panda to their future. The baseline data that they collect enables us to develop effective conservation strategies and assess our ongoing conservation efforts.

Your Red Panda Network Forest Guardian sponsorship not only helps protect the Red Panda in its natural habitat; it helps support a family at the same time. Your sponsorship will fund Forest Guardian base salary, training and dispatch, protective field clothing & gear, and field research equipment.

Sponsor a Forest Guardian today!

“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.”
