You’re about to make a huge difference for red pandas. By making a contribution or by asking your family and friends to support you (or both!) in this campaign you’ll be joining us in establishing the world's first protected area dedicated to red pandas! 

The Panchthar-Ilam-Taplejung (PIT) corridor in eastern Nepal is part of the Kangchenjunga Singhalila Complex (KSC), which provides connectivity between protected areas in India and Nepal. The region is one of the most biologically-diverse areas in the world and has been recognized as an important area for global biodiversity conservation by a number of leading international conservation organizations including WWF, BirdLife International and Conservation International.

Establishing the PIT Red Panda Protected Forest will connect the tri-national Kanchenjunga Conservation Area with India’s Barsey Rhododendron Garden and Singhalila National Park, creating an uninterrupted stretch of protected land extending for 11,500 km2. This area is critical not only to the red panda but also to many other threatened species who share habitat with red pandas including clouded leopards, Himalayan black bears, and hundreds of bird species. 

There are two ways you can help us establish the PIT Red Panda Protected Forest!

1. You can make a tax deductible donation
