Project Leader: SMCRF

Location: Gaurishankar Conservation Area

To raise awareness on local people towards red panda, a total of four community programmes were conducted in different areas (Gaurishankar, Marbu, Kalinchock and Ghorthali) that consist of local people and herders. Also, four red panda conservation groups were formed to monitor red panda and to control fuel wood collection, malingo/malingo shoot collection, livestock pressure in red panda habitat. Likewise, conservation classes were carried in four schools covering more than 150 students of secondary level. During conservation classes, art and essay competition were conducted among students and also nature conservation clubs were also formed; aiming to run such conservation activities in futures.
