The base is also home to lesser pandas, black-necked cranes and white storks as well as over 20 species of rare animals. Within the centre is the Giant Panda Museum, the only one of its kind with a variety of exhibitions covering everything you could possibly want to know about these creatures from their physical characteristics to the conservation efforts in place to ensure their survival.

Within the grounds of the base over 20 areas have been designated for particular activities with a kindergarten for baby pandas, a breeding zone, various bamboo forests to provide ample food and a research centre with details on conservation efforts. The Dujiangyan Panda Base is the newest of China's research centres dedicated to the endangered breed and like its contemporaries provides large, natural enclosures with acres at the foot of Qingcheng Mountain. Located about an hour and a half's drive from Chengdu, the base is home to some 40 giant pandas as well as five red pandas and is particularly popular thanks to its volunteer programmes.
The one-day programme enables visitors to assist with maintaining the living quarters, feeding the pandas and planting bamboo trees to ensure a continuous supply of food. On top of this volunteers will explore the panda rescue exhibition hall and watch documentaries to learn more about the work that goes into looking after these animals. The Dujiangyan Panda Base is home to a number of well-known pandas that have returned to China after being born abroad so even if you're not volunteering or having your photo taken you'll still get the chance to observe the pandas at feeding time or during the day as they sit around and take it easy.

The 20 giant pandas are the star attraction with a number of panda cubs having been bred over the last decade including a male and female set of twins back in The pandas live in enclosures which have an indoor concrete section and outdoor grassy area and therefore it's not always possible to see them as they may be sleeping away from prying eyes. Conditions here are not as spacious as centres elsewhere but the ultimate goal is to one day release the pandas back into the wild. It's possible to see captive pandas throughout the year though August and September are particularly good times to visit as this coincides with the birthing season with newborn babies occupying the nurseries.
The research centres have a viewing area in the nurseries where visitors can watch the pink cubs being looked after by human carers. Pandas are rather idle creatures and enjoy their sleep so it's best to visit the centres during feeding time when they are at their most active. The morning feeding session is typically held between and am each day.
For the rest of the day pandas are likely to be sleeping, possibly out of view in their indoor enclosures.
