Wildlife activists are thrilled about the fresh spotting of a red panda in the forests of Arunachal Pradesh. What is more, the furry creature has been photographed too. This happens to be the first time a red panda has been photographed in this particular area of the border state.
“Photographs of the Red Panda in the wild are very rare because they live in high altitude regions which are not easily accessible to humans. The photographs will conclusively prove their existence in the area,” Roopak Goswami, a Guwahati-based journalist who specialises in wildlife and environment-related matters, told The Tribune.
“The elusive Red Panda has been spotted and photo captured for the first time in the forests of Chug Valley of Arunachal Pradesh,” Arunachal Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Friday proudly retweeted a tweet originating from the state government headed by him.
“The community of Chug valley has declared the area community conserved area to secure and preserve the pristine habitat of wildlife & ecosystem,” added the tweet by @MyGovArunachal.
