A Particular Experience with Giant Pandas

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.
