In celebration of Earth Day 2021, we're restoring forests in Nepal to create a wildlife corridor where red pandas and other threatened species can thrive.
We are working with our local community partners to plant thousands of trees, restore hundreds of acres of red panda habitat, and connect fragmented forest so red pandas and other threatened wildlife can thrive in a contiguous biological corridor.

Thanks to you, we have planted
trees in red panda habitat in eastern Nepal so far in 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.
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!
