Help protect endangered Red Pandas and their habitat globally. The Red Panda Trust unites on the ground organisations to ensure the survivial of the Red Panda.
The loss of nesting trees and bamboo in the Eastern Himalayas—the location of almost 50 percent of the Red Panda’s habitat—is causing a decline in Red Panda populations across much of their range.
Red Pandas primarily eat bamboo leaves and fresh shoots, as well as berries, blossoms, bird eggs, and various plants' small leaves. They have a small, bony projection on their wrists that helps them grip bamboo stalks. Giant pandas also have this thumb-like adaptation.
The Red Panda Trust was established in 2013 with an aim to unite local on the ground organisations throughout the Red Pandas habitat globally. We currently work only in Nepal, Indian and China but are hoping to extend our work into Bhutan, Burma and Laos in the coming years.
Our projects concentrate on establishing crucial base line population data throughout the Red Pandas home range. As the Red Panda is increasingly targeted by the illegal hunting and wildlife trade such projects are needed more than ever.
We are a not for profit, non government organisation and attain all of our funds from generous donations. 100% of each donation goes directly to the conservation of Red Pandas. Whether that is to our Habre Handbook Program or 'Buy a Brick' initative for our Conservation Centre. Each and every cent goes to the Red Pandas.
We are always looking for committed passionate people to join our team. Roles range from Adminsitration positions to in field research, all of which directly contribute to the conservation of the Red Panda in the wild. Check out our 'Volunteer Opportunities' page to view our current available postions.
Our Conservation Center is a world first and will make a significant impact towards the conservation of the Red Panda throughout Asia. Through breeding, rehabilitation and release programs our centre will directly contribute to the protection and preservation of the Red Panda.
