Summary

“Help build a future for giant pandas as a volunteer at a conservation centre in China.”

Based in the beautiful Bifengxia mountains, this incredible project gives you the chance to volunteer with the most iconic of all China’s wildlife: giant pandas. With over 40 pandas resident at the Bifengxia Panda Base, there’s plenty of ongoing jobs to be done – these bears require lots of care and attention! Volunteers play a big part in helping to deliver this care, getting involved with a range of activities at the centre including cleaning out enclosures, conducting scientific research, and even feeding the pandas. The bears eat four times a day, so this is almost a full-time job in itself! When you’re not looking after or watching the pandas, you’ll get to immerse yourself in Chinese culture, learning the language, making dumplings, and getting to grips with the ancient game of Mahjong.

What We Love

  • Get your Hands Dirty: Pandas can be pretty demanding, so you’ll need to be prepared for some good, honest hard work. There’s lots of enclosure cleaning to be done, plus bamboo to feed the bears, and even panda cakes to prepare!

  • Explore the Centre: As a volunteer, you’ll enjoy full access to the whole reserve; visit the playful baby pandas at the nursery, and become a panda expert as you soak up some knowledge at the educational facilities! Just don’t forget to pack your camera…

  • Absorb the Culture: While you’re in China, be sure to take the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the wonderful culture. Learn Chinese calligraphy, make tasty dumplings, and see if you can become the Mahjong Master!
