Our campaign to restore and reconnect forests in Nepal.
We are planting thousands of trees, restoring hundreds of acres of red panda habitat, and connecting fragmented forest so red pandas and other threatened wildlife can thrive in a community-protected biological corridor.

Thanks to you, we have planted
trees in red panda habitat in eastern Nepal so far in 2021!
Select the number of trees you want to plant in red panda habitat and select "Plant A Red Panda Home" as your gift designation when checking out. All gifts matched x2 in November and December 2021!
In Nepal, their habitat is fragmented into 400 small forest patches that are mostly unprotected as Community Forests or private land. Forests are fragmented as they are converted to farmland and settlement and degraded by unsustainable livestock grazing and resource harvest by local communities.
This is a landscape-level approach that plants trees, installs fences (to protect newly planted saplings), purchases private lands in critical habitat areas, and works with local communities to conserve restored areas. It also creates green jobs! Learn more about supporting sustainable livelihoods!
A vast piece of land is barren in Jaubari (photo below) of eastern Nepal's Ilam district — located on the Nepal-India border — due to deforestation. This area is important to establishing habitat contiguity for red pandas as it directly connects the unprotected forest areas of Nepal with protected areas in Nepal and India.
We are committed to reforesting this important place through our Plant A Red Panda Home campaign!
