What You Can Expect

Volunteer for the Day at Chengdu Dujiangyan Panda Base Conservation Center

The center's breeding program produces adorable baby pandas

Begin your day with convenient hotel pickup in downtown Chengdu at 7:00am. In a comfortable tour vehicle, travel about an hour to the Dujiangyan Panda Base giant panda research and conservation center.

Upon arrival, you'll be presented with a souvenir T-shirt before switching to an onsite excursion vehicle that will take you to see the pandas in action in their enclosures. Meet the panda keepers, who will fill you in on the pandas' biology and behavior before you start your volunteering work. During the course of the day, you'll prepare food for the animals, including bamboo and 'panda cakes' made from rice and egg. Help clean the pandas' enclosures and provide assistance on any other tasks the caretaker is working on. 

Midday, take a break for a local lunch and some time exploring the panda garden. 

End up with a volunteer certificate in hand and a ride back to your hotel in Chengdu around late afternoon.
