Pandas bring us joy just looking at them, it’s sad to discover that they’re actually endangered and have a population of only 1,864. Since these creatures are considered a national treasure in China, The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a non-profit breeding and research facility for giant pandas (and other endangered animals) was founded in 1987, with the aim to keep this beautiful species alive, and increase their population.
Today, close to a hundred pandas are born in The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding each year. This modern and world-class panda “daycare” uses the best and safest ways to increase their population, since female pandas only give birth to one cub every two years.
There are other panda bases in China, and some of them are now accepting daily volunteers to help take care of these beautiful animals, cleaning and feeding them.
Probably the experience of a lifetime!
