Dujiangyan Panda Base (also Dujiangyan Panda Ark) is located in Qingchengshan Town (named after Mt. Qingcheng) of Dujiangyan City. Covering an area of 760 acres, Dujiangyan Panda Base is aimed to improve the panda’s living condition and ecological protection. At present, there are more than 30 giant pandas and 5 red pandas living here.

Vivien and friend got up very early in the morning for catching our bullet train from Chengdu to Qingchengshan Town at 6:48 am (C6101). Around 1 hour’s train and bus travel, we arrived at Dujiangyan Panda Base. We were very excited and took picture before the Panda base.

We took a walk around the base for half an hour. Around 08:30 in the morning, the ticket office began to work, visitors lining up to buy tickets. Because we made an appointment for the Panda Volunteer work in advance, therefore the guide in the volunteers’ workstation contacted us and showed us into the base.  After learning the safety announcement and signing the security agreement in the workstation, we put on our work clothes and gloves, wore our volunteer pass card, then our lifetime panda volunteer experience started.

Our working place on that day was PanPan Garden, there are 4 pandas living in PanPan Garden, the hero mother Yingying, the cute twins Bingbing and Qingqing, the gentle one-legged panda Dali. On the road to the PanPan Garden, our guide told us matters need to attention.

We started our work from cleaning the outside house of Yingying. Carrying out old bamboos, picking up droppings, cleaning up panda enclosures, carrying in fresh bamboos leaves and shoots, we feel so happy to work for these lovely pandas.

After these works, we took a visit to other panda enclosures in Shuangnan Garden, Diequan Garden and Linze Garden, walked around the panda base for more giant pandas and red pandas. Our guide told us lots of stories of the different pandas and we feel so happy to take many pictures and videos of them. I love that day so much.

We had break time in the workstation after lunch in the staff dining room inside the panda base. Following, we watched Panda Documentary in the workstation and know that how’s a baby panda to be a mature one, we know so much of the panda from the documentary and are very proud of we have the chance to have this one day work.

After documentary, we cleaned the panda enclosure and fed the panda again. Also, we prepared our own panda cake for them. How nice!
