About Program

About 1,600 giant pandas live in China's wild forest, mostly in Sichuan and the northwestern provinces of Shaanxi and Gansu. Approximately, another 300 are in captive-bred programs worldwide, mainly in China.
When we work on the development of a city or village, we should also consider the natural living environment for the giant panda. It shouldn't be that we just think of giving them food and lodging inside a house. Living better is more than just having a place to stay and having enough food to eat. Free life and following innate habits are also needed for all the animals. Can Giant Pandas really return to the wild? What can we do to help them completely shake off dependence on humans and integrate into a wild population?
This project offers volunteers the chance to learn and involve themselves in the important work of Giant Panda conservation, as well as exploring the stunning natural beauty of the landscape and mouth-watering organic Sichuan cuisine.
