THE FIREFOX GUARDIAN
Red Panda numbers are dangerously decreasing and there could be less than 2500 red pandas left in the wild. But an unconventional warrior has devoted her life to fight all forces that are against her and her beloved Red Pandas. The Firefox Guardian takes us on a mesmerizing journey through dense bamboo jungles in Nepal while exploring a special bond between the unique 'Firefoxes' and Menuka, a simple village girl. In this twelve-minute story, we follow Menuka, the first female forest guardian working with the Red Panda Network, as she tries to find a Panda juvenile to see if last season's wild Panda reproduction was successful. This film provides a unique window into the lives of the Forest Guardians and through their eyes, the life of the rarely documented endangered Red Pandas in the wild.
