Double Gold at the Cornwall Tourism Awards
We are over the moon to have won DOUBLE GOLD at The Cornwall Tourism Awards, for ‘Large Visitor Attraction of the Year’ and ‘Experience of the Year (Active or Learning)’, for our amazing Red Panda Experience.
A huge thank you to our dedicated team of staff, some of whom are on furlough at the moment, but each and every one are key in creating a wonderful fun and educational environment for great days out with wildlife conservation at our heart.

The Red Panda Experience helps fund two conservation project in Nepal.
At the time of writing £9,385 has been donated to the World’s First Protected Forest for Red Pandas
The Panchthar-Ilam-Taplejung (PIT) Red Panda Protected Forest has the densest population of red panda 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. It’s in this place that Red Panda Network is establishing the world’s first protected area dedicated to red panda. This area is critical not only to the red panda but also to many other threatened species who share habitat with red pandas including clouded leopards, Himalayan black bears, and hundreds of bird species. This territory will provide a safe environment for over 100 individual red pandas, believed to be about a fourth of Nepal’s total red panda population.
And… £3,265 to ‘Plant A Red Panda Home’ – Reforesting Core Red Panda Habitat in Nepal
This donation is to help restore more than 32 hectares in Nepal. These degraded locations have been identified as core habitat for red pandas and are critical to their survival. A Plantation of 32,000 native trees, installation of fencing to protect tree saplings and purchase of land for restoration (Eastern Nepal only).
