Adopt Paaru

Paaru lives in Ilam district's Padmasambhaw Community Forest with her two cubs. She is one of ten wild red pandas equipped with collars during Nepal's first-ever GPS-satellite collar study. The name Paaru in Hindu culture signifies the sun, fire, and goddess Parvati.

Your symbolic adoption will go directly to the conservation of red pandas and many other unique and threatened species who live here including clouded leopards and Himalayan black bears.

Adoptions start at $50 USD
