After hotel pickup in Chengdu city center at 8:30am, you'll drive a little over an hour to the Dujiangyan Panda Base giant panda research and conservation center. Here, you'll receive a commemorative T-shirt, then switch vehicles and ride an excursion bus up to the top of the site, where you can observe the pandas at the center going about their daily lives.
Next, meet the panda keepers who work to create a natural environment for China’s most beloved animals, and receive a short training session in how to deal with pandas. Later, you'll participate in two panda feedings ― one in the morning and one in the afternoon ― washing and carrying fresh bamboo for them, and preparing food like fruit, carrots, and panda cakes. These nutritional treats are made with shredded bamboo mixed by hand with rice and egg to create a large, solid cake.
After your first volunteer session, enjoy a local lunch, provided for you at the center’s cafeteria. Then, you'll spend about an hour visiting the panda gardens before you resume your volunteer work.
In the afternoon, you’ll help clean the pandas’ indoor and outdoor enclosures. Depending on the caretaker's schedule and the time of year, you may also have a chance to learn to record panda behavior or even help weigh the pandas.
You’ll receive a volunteer certificate and the satisfaction of contributing to a great cause after a full day helping out with these precious animals. After the tour ends, you'll be driven back to your hotel, arriving around 4:30pm.
