Black patches around the eyes, nibbling on bamboo and acting all clumsy. I must be talking about the world’s most adored animal, the giant panda. Boy, do I love these fluffs!
The giant panda is an endangered species, threatened by continued habitat loss and very low birth rate. An estimate of 1.600 pandas live across the globe, from which 70% in the Sichuan Province, China. Put the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding now on your bucket list! The Panda Base is located in a peaceful, beautiful, natural environment. It is the perfect place to see the rare panda bears yourself. The Giant Panda Museum gives good information about the species too.
Make sure to be there in the morning, when the pandas wake up and are fed. It’s one of the rare moments the pandas are ‘active’. Somewhere between July and November the cubs are born. Cuteness overload! And don’t forget to visit the underrated, but equally cute red pandas!
