About

Care for and research these magnificent gentle giants as they go about their daily lives in the largest Panda base in China.

Get close with baby pandas who weigh only 100 grams at birth and gradually develop to 60lbs in their second year of life. You'll also work with their parents that weigh a massive 250-350 lbs. During your placement your daily activities will include:

  • Cleaning of the Giant Panda enclosures, and the nursery.

  • Preparing the food and feeding the Giant Pandas. 99% of their diet is bamboo, however the balance usually consists of rice gruel, high fibre biscuits, carrots, apples and sweet potatoes.

  • You may also be asked to conduct some research into their habits and health, in order to expand the knowledge of how best to care for these highly endangered species.

Minimum duration is 1 week, maximum 2 weeks.

The project is based in the mountains of the Woolong Nature Reserve and near the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Leshan Giant Buddha.

Includes Arranging your program, meeting you at the airport, accommodation and food, full in-country support, and more. We look after you with full support before you start and help and support during your program, provided by our admin staff and our local staff in your destination country.
