HD Visit to the Giant Panda Research Base


| May 15, 2020

The Giant Panda Research Base has been in operation since 1990. Pandas at the base live in large enclosures designed to resemble their natural habitat, which helps the visitor to understand how these animals live in the wild. The base is dedicated to the research, breeding and conservation of the giant panda, as well as keeping the public aware of the status of this endangered species, of which there are estimated to be just 700 to 1,000 left in the wild. Writings about the panda can be traced back 3,000 years, and they were once believed to have magical powers that could ward off evil spirits. In addition to the giant panda, visitors will also be able to see its smaller and more active cousin, the red panda. Share:
