Who came first: the red panda or the giant panda? We'll give you a hint - it's the same panda that is also, unfortunately, the endangered panda. There may be as few as 2,500 red pandas remaining in the wild. Deforestation, as well as poaching, are threatening the future of the first panda. Join us for this special conservation lecture with Red Panda Network's deputy director, Terrance Lee, as he shares the successes and challenges of "Saving the Last of the First Panda."
"The first time I saw a red panda (or ever heard of one) was in a zoo just after high school. It was standing on its hind legs, and for a moment, I was convinced it was a toddler in a costume. I have been with the Red Panda Network since 2013, and I am now certain red pandas are real and feel honored to be a part of such a wonderful team dedicated to protecting them. I have a degree in Conservation Biology and 15 years of experience in nonprofit development."
