Cette organisation se consacre à la préservation du Panda Géant dans la province de Wolong en Chine.
Panda Mountain integrates planning, conservation, education, training, community engagement and sustainable development into our work in Wolong.
Wolong Nature Reserve is a site of international significance that was designated by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site. Wolong Nature Reserve was established in 1963 and covers an area of about 200,000 hectares in the Qionglai Mountains region. There are over 4,000 different species recorded in the reserve. Wolong houses more than 150 highly endangered giant pandas. The reserve is also a home to many other endangered species including: red pandas, golden monkeys, white-lipped deer and many precious plants.
In the 1990s, due to logging in the 60s and 70s, an alien species, Japanese Larch, was planted as a way to reverse the deforestation quickly. However, this has caused degradation to Giant Panda habitat as the invasive species lets little else grow. Restoration is needed to protect the area, to help local people and the panda.
Over the past ten years, Panda Mountain has built trusted working relationships with the leadership of Wolong, providing a range of advisory and planning services. Through our on-the-ground experience we have gained a deep rooted understanding of Wolong.
The Panda Mountain team, consisting of Chinese, US, and international experts, is uniquely qualified to play a transformative role in helping to:
• guide Wolong's comprehensive economic and environmental redevelopment;
• promote the conservation of Giant Panda habitat;
• protect biodiversity; and
• celebrate the cultural richness and protect the well-being of Wolong's indigenous communities.
