Chengdu Panda Private Volunteer Program at Dujiangyan Panda Base
Meet your guide at 8:00 am from your Chengdu downtown hotel lobby, board a comfortable vehicle and drive approximately 1.5 hours to the Dujiangyan Panda Base. Enjoy the scenic surroundings on the way and get more knowledge of Chengdu from your guide.
Dujiangyan Panda Base, also known as China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Panda Dujiangyan Base, is the only giant panda care, disease prevention and control institute in the world. Here you will volunteer for a memorable day with Giant Pandas.
The volunteers’ work is mainly about two aspects, sweeping and feeding. Upon arrival, you will change into special uniforms and be given short training in how to deal with the pandas. You first chore is cleaning the panda enclosures and taking notes for record. After that, it is time to wash and carry fresh bamboo, prepare food like fruit, carrots and panda cakes, and distribute the food to the pandas.
After your morning volunteer session, enjoy a local lunch at the centre’s cafeteria and spend around 1 hour strolling around the centre and watch a panda documentary.
In the afternoon, you will help to clean the indoor and outdoor enclosures and make panda food, or you might have a chance to record panda behaviour based on the keeper’s schedule. You can take pictures of Giant Pandas and learn about each lovely panda.
After this once-in-a-lifetime experience at the Panda Base, you will receive a volunteer certificate and the satisfaction of contributing to a great cause, then enjoy a comfortable transfer back to your hotel to conclude the trip.
