CONSERVATION AT OUR HEART KEEPER NOTES FROM THE WILDLIFE PARK


Continued from cover... Not everybody is aware of the conservation work that takes place in a modern Wildlife Park or Zoo. At the Lake District Wildlife Park, we are involved in the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme (EEP) for a number of species that we house, such as Red Pandas and Scottish Wildcats. Through our daily displays and talks we aim to inform and inspire people about conservation and why it is important to look after these animals now and in the future.


Lucy Dunn Education and Marketing Co-ordinator


Red Pandas are found in the mountains of Nepal, Myanmar (Burma) and China. They spend a lot of their time in the trees and their diet mainly consists of bamboo but they do eat fruit and nuts. The Red Panda was discovered 50 years before the Giant Panda but is not a close relative. Red Pandas are more closely related to the Mustelid family than the Giant Pandas.


Red Pandas numbers have rapidly declined over the last 20 years and it is

now estimated that there are only around 2,500 of them left in the wild. This is a decline of over 50%. They have become endangered due to habitat loss, deforestation by livestock herders, disease from feral dogs and poaching.


The Red Panda Network is a conservation charity that the Lake District Wildlife Park has supported for the last 5 years. We help to employ Forest Guardians, who patrol areas where Red Pandas live. The


Guardians work with local communities to educate them and empower them to protect their local forest and the wildlife that lives there.


We chose Skiddaw as it is the backdrop to the Lake District Wildlife Park and it was a real challenge for Lauren, being her first mountain walk. The day of the walk was very wet and windy, so it was hard going, with no views except of white cloud. Some people did stop and talk to us, others preferred to just battle on against the weather!


At the last count we have raised around £900 for the Red Panda Network and we are still collecting in funds. So, for us it was definitely worth the effort and we send our thanks to all those people who have supported us.
