Red panda on brink of extinction

Jan 13 – India’s Himalayan state of Sikkim is making efforts to save the red panda from extinction and has embarked on a programme of conservation and breeding.

Red panda, one of the most endangered animal species in the world categorised in Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), is the state animal of north-eastern Sikkim.

The Himalayan Zoological Park (HZP) in collaboration with the state forest department has initiated a programme for the conservation and breeding of red panda.

    More than 350 new species of animals, fish and plants have been discovered in one of the world’s “most biologically rich areas” over the last decade, conservationists have said.

    But the Eastern Himalayas, a region spanning Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet, north eastern India and the far north of Burma, is also one of the areas most under threat from climate change, a report by WWF warned.

    It is feared the impacts of a warming climate, such as melting glaciers and flooding, will exacerbate existing environmental threats including logging, overgrazing, the wildlife trade and pollution.
