The Red Panda Network
Since 2014 Dublin Zoo has provided annual financial support for the Red Panda Network’s Forest Guardian programme in Nepal. The project operates through local people called forest guardians. Forest guardians monitor red panda populations and their habitat in their local areas and collect information on how people are using the forest. They also raise awareness about red pandas and their threats in their local communities and are involved with anti-poaching activities.
To learn more about the role of Forest Guardians, please see this interview with Ngima Dawa Sherpa, a Forest Guardian protecting red pandas in Nepal.
