Donations and adoptions
Adoptions and donations are one of the most meaningful gifts. Red Pandas are in threat and they need every help they could get. And you also help the people who live in or next to the Red Panda habitat.
The Red Panda Network focuses its work in Eastern Nepal. You can (symbolic) adopt a Red Panda and get a certificate. Regular donations can also be contributed. Red Panda Network also cooperates with so called Forest Guardians who work to protect the Red Pandas. You can also support the Forest Guardians.
