Panda Conservation

Volunteer with Pandas

Panda conservation has never been more important and in demand. Volunteer with pandas and help the approximate 1,600 which are still in the wild. That is a devastating fact that is only declining with each year that passes and there are a number of reasons as to why this is.

99% of a panda’s diet is bamboo; one panda needs to consume about 26 to 84 pounds of it each day in order to survive! And yet all around them their environment and food supplies are being destroyed due to logging, deforestation and hunting. Pandas live in western China where infrastructure and new roads are being built every day, destroying the breeding habits of one the world’s rarest animals. Volunteer with pandas and assist the panda keepers with their daily duties such as cleaning the enclosures, preparing meals and feeding the adult and baby pandas. You may also have the opportunity to learn some Chinese or help the local people with their English.
