2016 Volunteer Trip
In August and September this year we are running our first Volunteer Trip since the recent earthquake and civil distasters in Nepal.
Over a three week period in Nepal's Summer and Autumn we will venture into Nepal's famous Langtang National Park. Not only is this a stunning and biodiverse location, but it represents some of the most intact Red Panda habitat in Nepal.
As a group we will not only spend our days searching and tracking these handsome yet elusive mammals, we will also be doing novel and ground breaking behavioural research on this species.
The work will involve setting up camera traps at three different locations within the buffer zone of Langtang National Park. Over the three week period we will record the behaviours of a population of Red Pandas in the hopes of understanding more about their lives.
Follow this link to read more and donate to help us purchase camera traps for this study.
Our trip into the Red Panda's habitat will run as follows:
August 25th: Arrive in Kathmandu
August 26-28th: A few days to settle in Kathmandu, exploring etc.
August 29th: Catch jeeps to Dunche, Langtang National Park
August 30th: drive and hike to Ghyangphedi, Langtang National Park Buffer Zone (Field Site). Please note accomodation in Ghyangphedi will be tents (provided), due to the recent natural disasters.
August 31st- September 10th: Main bulk of trip. We will be doing some research (behavioural analysis- focusing on reproductive ecology). As well as spotting red pandas.
September 11th: Hike and drive to Dunche.
September 12th: Dunche to KTM
September 13th: Free Day in Kathmandu
This trip costs AU$1,800 for the entire three week period. This includes, accomodation in Kathmandu, rental of tents for field work, all meals, all transfers and transport to the field, guided tour of Kathmandu and surrounds and more! The only two things that this does NOT cover is your international airfare, travel insurance, immunisations and visas.
This is truly a trip of a life time, and we can't wait to greet you at the top of the world!
