1-Day Panda Keeper in Dujiangyan
To be a panda's keeper for one day, and learn more about pandas. In the big earthquake happened on May.12th, 2008, China Protection & Research Center of Giant Panda in Wolong has been damaged heavily. Panda enclosures and research facilities were broken down. In order to protect giant pandas and scientifically do research on them, Chinese government determined to select a new site to build a professional structure for panda rescue, disease control and prevention. This is also to ensure giant pandas' health under artificial rearing and promote the rescue ability for wild pandas. On Jun.19th, 2009, Sichuan government agreed to construct Dujiangyan Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Shiqiao Village, Qingchengshan Town, Dujiangyan City. This project was completed in December of 2013. Now Dujiangyan Panda Park, which is the short name of Dujiangyan Giant Panda Protection and Research Center, becomes the most easily accessible panda base for you to experience a keeper's work.
