Ya'an Bifengxia Panda Keeper & Shangli Old Town 2-Day Experience

In June 1980, the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda was established at Wolong with the efforts of both World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Chinese government. To this date, researchers have conducted many breeding research projects on giant pandas and have successfully bred 66 panda cubs. A mountain stream runs through the Wolong Valley where the reserve is. And water is just the most important thing that pandas reply on existence. The region, including Wolong Panda Research Center, was largely devastated on May 12, 2008, by a catastrophic earthquake, many giant panda houses were broken. For the time being the giant pandas have been relocated to the Bifengxia Panda Base. After several years' of reconstruction, Wolong National Nature Reserve reopened in May, 2016.
