Red Panda Network’s project entitled ‘Conserving Red Pandas, Nepal’ has again been short listed by European Outdoor Conservation Association public voting. They lost out on the last voting by a very thin margin of 250 votes. Voting takes less than ONE MINUTE and does not require any registration. If “Conserving Red Pandas, Nepal” wins then they will be eligible for funding to continue their work with the endangered red pandas in the hills of Nepal, community awareness and development work. We have till the 30th of March to vote.
