Four of the world’s 7 tallest mountains can be seen from the PIT Red Panda Protected Forest.

Since 2007, RPN has been conserving wild red pandas in the Panchthar-Ilam-Taplejung (PIT) corridor of eastern Nepal. This area is home to 25% of Nepal’s endangered red panda has been identified as a global biodiversity hotspot.

It is here, we are establishing the PIT Red Panda Protected Forest: the world’s first protected area dedicated to red panda.

This initiative is critical in a time when 70% of red panda habitat in Nepal is located outside of protected areas and is threatened by deforestation and other human activities. As a Summit Society member, you create the momentum we need to mitigate the threats to their survival and reach the peaks of red panda conservation.

Thank You to Our Summit Society Supporters!

Words from a Summit Society member:

"I've seen firsthand how contributing to Red Panda Network supports the growth and viability of the cloud forests the red panda is so well-adapted to. The dense, mossy trees and foliage the red pandas blend into are like nothing I'd ever seen before, and you feel instinctively how their adaptations are made for these forests, and that safeguarding this land means saving the red panda."
