The Panchthar-Ilam-Taplejung (PIT) Red Panda Protected Forest has the densest population of red pandas in Nepal and is part of the Kangchenjunga Singhalila Complex: one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. It is threatened by human population growth and expanding development. Community projects including tree planting is underway to improve the habitat for Red Pandas.
