Panda ‘daycare’ is doing wonders for conservation efforts

Panda ‘daycare’ is doing wonders for conservation efforts

Although these images are adorable in their own right, the scenes depict incredibly important steps in ensuring the future of the majestic Giant Panda.

In order to rescue and protect the endangered giant panda species, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding was established in March 1987 with the mission to further the research and conservation carried out by the Chengdu Zoo.

With the help of trained professionals, the research base is working tirelessly to reinvigorate the dwindling population – which is no easy task  considering females can only breed for 2-3 days per year and produce a maximum of two pups per litter.

The ‘daycare’ offers a chance for the babies born in captivity to learn vital life skills that will enable them to be set free once re-population numbers reach the desired amount.
