This study aims to improve understanding of red panda ecology in human-dominated areas. I have
been using GPS telemetry, camera trapping and field survey to collect the necessary data. At the
end of study, I expect to generate knowledge on how red pandas respond to disturbances in humandominated
and fragmented landscapes that will eventually contribute in securing the long-term
well-being of both human and red panda, living in the same landscape.
