Educating the World. One handbook at a time
The 'Habre Handbook' was conceptualised by one of our collaborative research teams while in far east Nepal in 2013. Our handbook embodies the issues surrounding the red panda, beginning with its title, as the word for 'Red Panda' in Nepali is हाब्रे (Habre).The Handbook is full of information about Red Pandas including general facts such as their distribution range, food sources and gestation periods. The handbook also contains reasons why the Red Pandas are important, their threats and how people can help. These books are available to local community members and groups in Nepal, China and India as well as to people living outside the Red Pandas natural range. The handbooks were first distributed in far eastern Nepal with our partner organisation the Red Panda Network as shown in the below image (this was from a visit to a local school where each student was also given a new set of warm clothes and shoes to help keep them warm during Nepal's harsh winter).
These are highly informative booklets that encourage education and awareness within the local communities. We need your help to get these handbooks off the ground as they are currently waiting to be printed. A donation of $25 can print and distribute a handbook to a local village.
