International Red Panda Day 2023

Date and Theme of International Red Panda Day 2023. Why do we celebrate International Red Panda Day every year? 

International Red Panda Day is celebrated on the third Saturday of September each year to raise awareness about the plight of these endangered animals.

International Red Panda Day, an event dedicated to raising awareness  about the endangered red panda (Ailurus fulgens), was first introduced  by the Red Panda Network (RPN) in 2010.

Red pandas are native to the Eastern Himalayas and southwestern China, and they are estimated to number only around 10,000 individuals in the wild

Red pandas are important members of the ecosystems they inhabit. They help to control populations of insects and small mammals, and they also disperse seeds.

Red pandas are also a popular tourist attraction, and they play an important role in the economies of some local communities. 

International Red Panda Day is a great opportunity to learn more about these amazing animals and take action to help them. 

By taking simple steps, such as reducing your carbon footprint and donating to red panda conservation organizations, you can make a difference.

This year, it will be celebrated on September 16, 2023. The theme for the day is to “save red pandas from extinction”.
