Our Purpose

  • Learn about panda conservation and research taking place in China and contribute to the efforts to protect these magnificent, and sadly vulnerable, creatures.
  • Giant Pandas are still considered a vulnerable species, and their future remains dependent on human protection. According to some researchers, there are approximately 2000 left in the wild.
  • There will also be lots of time to engage with Chinese culture and explore the stunning Chengdu landscape.
