When we were planning our trip to China and examining the options, there was one that jumped out at Karen, volunteering with the Pandas. At the Dujiangyan Base for research into Giant Pandas they have a program where you get to do some work near the Pandas. To be clear, you no longer get to touch the Pandas, however you do get to feed them which is pretty darn cute. A warning now. This is a very photo heavy blog post. The darn animals are just too cute.
Now with all this work I am aware you are starting to feel sorry for us and wonder if we saw much of the Pandas. Don’t worry, the day included plenty of free time to wander around and take in the antics of these beautiful creatures.
We had a fantastic day with the pandas. As volunteers they even fed us, which was interesting, eating with the other workers there. If you are ever in Chengdu and are interested in pandas I would highly recommend the program.
Enjoy a short video of their antics.
