International Red Panda Day 2024, History, Importance & How to Celebrate

International Red Panda Day 2024

Every year, on the third Saturday in September—this year on September 21—we come together to celebrate International Red Panda Day. This day, started by the Red Panda Network in 2010, aims to tell everyone about the red panda, a species that’s in danger of disappearing. With global warming and climate change becoming more serious, it’s even more important to celebrate this day.

History of International Red Panda Day

Red pandas, cute animals living in the Eastern Himalayas (places like China, Nepal, and Bhutan), are at risk of going away forever. People are causing problems for them, like messing up their homes, hunting them, and using their fur for clothes. Laws in some countries protect them, but not enough people know or care about it. The Himalayan region, where red pandas live, also has a hard time enforcing these laws, and the Nepalese government doesn’t have enough money to help. That’s why red pandas are in danger, and groups like WWF are working hard to help them.

Interesting Facts about Red Pandas

Red pandas aren’t related to giant pandas; they’re about the size of a house cat. But, despite their small size, they play a big role in keeping the environment healthy.
