Giant Panda Breeding Research Base - Review
Beloved by the entire world, these adorable Giant Pandas are China’s treasure. Only found in Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces, just 1000 live today. 80% of the existing Pandas are distributed within the Sichuan province and Chengdu is the right place to meet these lovely creatures.
The Panda Breeding and Research centre thrives to create and imitate the natural habitat of Panda’s to make them feel at home and accelerate their rearing and breeding. Taking care of Pandas and other endangered wild creatures is the prime objective of the centre. Giant Pandas, Lesser Pandas, Black-necked cranes, white strokes and 20 other species of rare animals roam freely and call this centre a home. Lush green Bamboo forests, bright flowers, natural hill and fresh air make it an alluring sight.
The Giant Panda museum which operates since 1993 is one of its kind Museum and it establishes to improve public awareness about protection of wild animals and their natural habitat. Claimed as world’s only thematic museum for rare and endangered animal species, the museum is spread over three halls and the exhibits include precious pictures and around 800 materials showing more than 2140 samples of animals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and insects as well as fossils and models.

Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, Chengdu Reviews
So many pandas to see in such a lush environment. The centre is well organised and sign-posted and a joy to visit. The baby pandas were especially cute. With large crowds it pays to arrive early to enjoy the pandas at leisure.
There's no other place like it. Say what you will of what panda conservation is all about, but they run this place really tight. Plus the giant furries themselves are just so adorable. I recommend getting there EARLY, like, maybe 7 am, because the biggest downside are the massive CROWDS. But, hey, this is China after all.
Great Place to watch the Cuties!! A group of 14 of us visited the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base on 12th June 2018. We purchased the entrance tickets (58 CNY each) and the sightseeing bus tickets (10CNY). However, since the queue for the bus was too long we started walking along the designated roads within the park. The guide informed us that in setting up the park, the authorities have replicated and imitated the natural habitat of the Giant Pandas that are found only in a limited part of China including Sichuan Province, where this research station is based. Since the danger of extinction of Giant Pandas are high, the research station employs methods to increase the Panda population through breeding. In addition to the Great Pandas, which are kept in designated areas, inaccessible to the public, there are other animals too. We came across some colourful jungle fowl and peacocks. There are colourful flower trees planted all over the park making it a very pleasant to walk along. When we went in the morning around 0900, it was feeding time. The Pandas were engaged in getting fed with their favourite food, bamboos. They are cute and lovable creatures. I was greatly impressed by the incubators and the manner in which new-borns are cared for. The new born babies are tiny compared to the mothers – the size of a cake of butter as our guide put it. Visitors can also purchase Panda toys too. Almost every visitor purchases them to remember the cute Pandas!
One of the star highlights of our time in China, it was an incredible privilege to see these adorable and playful creatures in captivity, where they are being researched and successfully bred to ensure their future. We were lucky to see the newborn pandas being fed and nursed, adolescent pandas playing together and climbing, and big pandas... sleeping. :) There were also beautiful red pandas and some beautiful exotic birds.
I’ve spent 2 out of 3 days here for Chengdu trip. Pandas look surreal and its amazing! I wanted to hold baby pandas but unfortunately, the program aren’t avaliable on the date i visited. Definietly would recommend anyone to visit this zoo.
