Another year is coming to an end.

We would like to thank all our readers (luckily there are more and more!) and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

In 2019 we will continue to work to give Red Pandas the attention they deserve.

Admittedly, the initial situation is a very difficult one. The loss of habitat, but also the illegal trade with animals and their skins are causing problems for the Red Pandas.

But at the same time, there are also initiatives that are tackling the problems with a great deal of passion.

From 7 January 2019, Red Pandazine will be fully dedicated to the Red Pandas again. For this purpose we will change some of our offers, but also expand them.
