Today is International Red Panda Day, which aims help to raise awareness about red pandas. Dozens of zoos around the world are participating in this year’s event.
This Red Panda Day the Red Panda Network is working to mobilize support for the Red Panda Network Community Conservation Resource Center in Nepal.
“The goal of the Center is to educate visitors on the value of their local natural resources and the unique endangered species that call the region home, focusing on red panda,” according to the Red Panda Network. “It hopes to be a demonstration site for innovative conservation technology that local villagers can implement in their own villages and homes.”
