The project CONSERVING RED PANDAS NEPAL is the winner of the recent European Outdoor Conservation Association vote campaign! You guys totally rocked the Red Panda vote with 46% votes secured. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone on the lexlimbu.com network who voted for Conserving Red Pandas Nepal after the many photo shares and link shares in the past few weeks! We did it! THANK YOU!
When I asked Red Panda Network how the win would benefit the organisation and red pandas in Nepal, this is what they had shared:
