All over the wold people should folow the example of this 8-year-old Hailey Sun Smith : she set up a lemonade stand with informational flyers to raise money for red pandas and convinced her school to celebrate International Red Panda Day ! 8 YEAR ! She has more brain and guts than most people here on this planet !

Charming creatures.... Hailey has something to teach adults - that one person CAN make a difference and can start a chain of events that has real results.

Signed adn noted, it's about time that ALL animals whether in the wild or in amusement parks or as pets are being protected everywhere. The exotic pets should be taken away once the government gets to hear about them and those who sell them should be incarcerated. Poachers and people being caught selling their pelts ought to get the same punishment, but then I don't know how Nepal treats them. It didn't say what happened to the man caught selling 3 of their pelts. Do you know anymore?
