Giant Panda Centre in China
The survival of this species has been threatened in the past, so all conservation efforts are of paramount importance.
The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda (CCRCGP) is located in Bifengxia, a branch of Woolong. For over 20 years the organization has worked for the preservation of the panda population, focussing primarily on breeding and reproduction research. The survivial of the species was previously threatened and current conservation efforts are essential in ensuring this doesn't happen again. The current panda birth and survival rates are some of the best in the world as is reflected in the rise in numbers from an initial 6 animals to over 70 pandas.
In 2003 the first stage of a state-of-the-art panda base with 6 sections was created. It is divided into 6 sections: panda raising and breeding area, scientific study area, food preparing and animal hospital area, staff living area, bamboo base area, and a tourist accommodation area.
Volunteers will assist in safeguarding the future of these enchanting animals byworking closely with a trainer in taking care of teh pandas. Some of the tasks you may be required to do include:
- Preparing food for the pandas such as apples, panda bread, and carrots
- Chopping and carrying bamboo
- Cleaning the panda enclosures
If you come from a veterinary background you may occasionally partake in observation and research at the center.
