RED PANDA NETWORK Overview
Profile ( less )
Target demographics: Rural communities in the Himalayan highlands near or in red panda habitat areas. We work with community members as forest guardians who become multipliers of awareness in their communities, we help them build community conservation organizations, we work with teachers and school children, and with government agencies.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: In 3 hours you can set up your own fundraising and awareness event about red panda conservation. See 'Ways You Can Help' on our website
We currently don't have the capacity to work directly with very short-term volunteers; if there is an event a 3-hour volunteer could help in fundraising or event support, for example at your school or a zoo. Start by motivating them to participate in International Red Panda Day:
Overall we mostly need volunteers taking on a task for about a year at about 5 hours a week on average.
Geographic areas served: Nepal (currently mostly 3 districts in Eastern Nepal), India (building collaboration in Sikkim), China (so far mostly research and awareness building), and in future planning expansion into Bhutan and Myanmar.
