Panda Volunteer

Giant pandas, China’s national animal(national treasure), are a symbol of peace and friendship. They are one of favourite animals in the wolrd. So far,there are around 1864 wild pandas all over the world. Most of them inhabit in Sichuan Province, hence the name, panda country. At present, there are four natural habitats of giant pandas in this area. The most famous is Wolong-Bifengxia Base , where China Wolong Conservation & Research Center for Giant Pandas is located. In recent years,panda research staff have done lots of work for protection of pandas , and they’ve made great success in breeding . Currently, over 200 pandas were born in Wolong. Due to the quake, the most part of Wolong Base was damaged. A new one for Wolong Panda Base is being built , it can be completed in 2017. Now pandas are relocated in Bifengxia Base and Dujiangyan Base. West China Adventures, with excellent friendship and good relations between these panda bases, has made a volunteer program to help pandas. Volunteers will have opportunities to clean panda’s enclosures, do feeding , even cutting bamboo, under instructions of panda keepers and experts.
