Panda Volunteer Work & Qingcheng Shan Tour

Duration: 6

Destination: Chengdu, Yaan, Qingchengshan

Highlights: Work closely with panda keepers and the pandas

Tour Code: SPT-17

The Giant Panda is one of the most endangered animals in the world, and this conservation project is a fantastic opportunity to observe and help these adorable creatures. Volunteer here and your assistance will go a long way to helping prevent the extinction of this lovely animal.

 

The Bifengxia Panda Base is currently accepting visitors and volunteers. Due to the 12th May 2008 earthquake, the Wolong National Nature Reserve is closed to the public. Most of the pandas of Wolong have been relocated to the sister centre, Bifengxia Panda Base. After Wolong Centre reconstruction is completed, volunteers will be accepted again by Wolong Panda Centre.

 

Welcome to join us to help these amazing pandas!
