Thank you for your interest in my campaign! My name is Cheyenne and my goal is to head to Nepal witht The Red Panda Network.
The Red Panda Network is going to Nepal in November of 2017. The red panda is an endangered species so to encounter one in the wild is a pretty big deal! The overall goal is to treck through the jungle in Nepal to find these amazing critters. If we are able to find them, we will hopefully be able to add the ones we see to the count of how many we believe are left in the wild. This will also give us an idea of the primary area they are living so we can be sure to protect said area. 
I am a Wildlife Management major so this will help further my knowledge of the conservation efforts of this species. Although doing field work is different from my usual hands-on animal care experience, I know this will be a great experience and help me further my career.
Any help, even just sharing this campaign, is very appreciated and I wouldn't be able to thank you enough!
