We had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Heather was an excellent guide: extremely personable and happy to answer any questions. Highly recommended.
The Dujiangyan Panda Base and Center for Disease Control is one of China’s top panda rehabilitation programs—and only 30 volunteer spots are available each day. Book ahead to secure your volunteer position, where you’ll help feed and care for up to 40 giant pandas supervised by the center’s staff. The day includes a Chinese buffet lunch and round-trip transportation from your Chengdu hotel.
The day begins with pickup from your Chengdu hotel for the journey to Dujiangyan Panda Base and Center for Disease Control. On arrival, greet the staff, change into your volunteer clothes, and learn about the center’s history and mission: to rescue wild pandas and help control disease.
Around 40 giant pandas live on the base. Spend the day preparing panda food, cleaning the pandas' enclosures, and feeding them snacks, while you learn about their biology and social habits, as well as what more you can do to help preserve this endangered species. On your break, enjoy a traditional Sichuan buffet lunch and try the panda tea. Once the day’s work is finished, you’ll be dropped back to your original departure point.
