Species profile: red panda

The charismatic red panda is found in the mountainous, temperate forests of Asia. These shy and largely nocturnal animals spend most of their time in trees and are very difficult to observe in the wild.

Classified by the IUCN as Vulnerable, red panda numbers are in decline, despite being protected by national laws in their range countries. Find out how Fauna & Flora International is working to protect these beautiful animals in the Himalayan borderlands between Myanmar and China, where they are threatened by habitat loss and poaching.

Sumatran tiger

Saving the Sumatran tiger

Most recent surveys indicate there are around 500 Sumatran tigers existing in the wild.

One of the main threats to Sumatran tigers is poaching. Hunters trap or shoot them for their skin and bones, which are in high demand in Asian traditional medicine while there is still demand for skins both in Indonesia and overseas

Fauna & Flora International (FFI) works in Indonesia to combat Sumatran tiger poaching and protect the big cat's habitat through patrolling.

Protecting mountain gorillas across African borders

Fewer than 900 mountain gorillas remain in the wild, scattered across the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Through our work with the International Gorilla Conservation Programme, Fauna & Flora International is supporting protected area authorities in these three countries to improve prospects for mountain gorillas and their habitat.
