A Particular Experience with Giant Pandas
Dujiangyan Panda Base is located 60 km west to Chengdu downtown. It is a professional organization specialized in panda rescue and disease prevention center in China, covering an area of 760 acres.
The base is a charitable organization devoted to giant panda research and protection, built with sponsors from Hong Kong 's special administrative region (SAR) council. Together with the Wolong and Ya'an bases, these three centers constitute a platform that allows demonstration of on-site and in-site conservation of giant pandas.
1. The age limitation for the panda volunteer work is from 12 to 65 years old. No age limitation for people to hold panda for pictures.
2. Please check the availability of the panda keeper volunteer work with me once when your travel date is set up. When the places of the volunteer work are confirmed, you need to fill a health form to complete the booking.
3. If the volunteer work in Dujiangyan is unvailable, you may consider to do that in either Wolong or Bifengxia.
Set off for Dujiangyan Panda Base at 7:15 am. Start the Volunteer Work around 9:00am. You will pick up panda's poo, clean and rinse floor, and feed them with bamboo or carrot. The exciting moment comes at 10:30. You can hold baby panda for pictures by donating extra money. Lunch is included. The volunteer work concludes with a cooking class at approximately 14:30. We will head back for Chengdu and drop you off at your hotel by 17:00.
Note:The Panda Keeper Program is getting more and more popular. To maximize your opportunity to get close to pandas, please inquire soon to check the availability.
