Panda “Daycare” Exists And Is Most Adorable Place On Earth

The Chengdu Research Base in China seems like it just might be one of the cutest places on earth – and it’s vitally important for the survival of the endangered giant pandas that we all love so much, too. This panda “daycare” is actually a specialized breeding center and nursery that seeks to breed new pandas to revitalize the dwindling wild population, which may be as small as 1,864.

Each panda cub is special – not just because of how cute they are, but also because of how hard it is to get pandas to breed. Females are able to breed for only 2-3 days a year, and they only give birth to one cub every two years.

I'm dying :-). These photos are so adorable. I have been fortunate enough to travel to the Woolong Panda Research Centre in China a number of years back. The Centre is located very near their natural habitat in the wild. Watching young pandas play and being able to interact with one for a short time was one of my life's experiences that I will never forget. Young pandas are like happy little children, running around, climbing, play fighting, doing somersaults … I watched them for hours. The people there do amazing work. Unfortunately, there have not been very many successful releases back into the wild. These are truly amazing and wonderful animals and I hope that they will be around for the next generations to see.

I enjoyed your note about your trip. Thank you. Where is wild in China or anywhere? We are past that. Wilderness only means to humans that the land and resources "belong to no one" and are up for grabs. A better idea now might be the idea of garden. A panda garden. All wilderness should be re-designated as gardens. We have to get ourselves back to the garden in the words of a prophetic song. :)

I was there couple years ago November through Earth Watch. Stayed there for a week and realised it is a program working inside the research centre. Yes I get to see these giant pandas for long hours. But it was mostly observing the older ones which were 2 to 5 year old. Most of these pandas are locked up behind bars, depressed or bored. Yes visiting the cubs inside the cage was the highlight but we don't get to touch them. The little ones you see in these photos were confined in a room most of the time. And the one year old cubs are able to move around and climb trees. But the fence of the enclosure were not high or far enough to prevent disturbance from the local tourists. I saw one Chinese kid yelling at the cubs seemingly want to attract their attention onto himself. There was an elderly woman who threw apple cores over the fence and let the cubs eat them. Sure but I'm worry those apples may be havily laced pesticides or herbicide due to commercial farming.

Such a stark contrast to the way they treat dogs. You know, putting them in ovens and baking them alive #stopyulin

It's not about the pregnancy (China can do that too) it's releasing them back into the wild after they are raised and dependent on human interaction.

I hope to visit one day but I really would love to see the babies with their mum but I have read that their mums don’t always look after them. It is really sad but I guess that’s nature for you. I do hope that all of the pandas are looked after well and some are not closed in all day as commented somewhere on here! That would be heartbreaking and cruel.

the way people treat dogs differently is a culture issue. the real situation is that in China, only some areas have the tradition of eating dogs, like Korean do. most of the areas treat dogs kindly. you actually have a stereotype of China based on the propaganda of your media. we actually have many unfair stereotype of your country too. so, don't be deceived by the media report, be clear if your mind. Indians may think you are crazy since you eat beef.

When full grown, are the pandas released into the wild?

JoeyTai

They have tried, but the results have not been very successful. Because of their small numbers in the wild, and their extremely short breeding period, conservation has been near impossible.

I feel sad that there is probably far more money going into this than there would be in the many orphanages. :( Not saying that this isn't a vitally important thing, protecting a species. Just thought about how many people probably work here and how much attention these cuties get, compared to babies. :(
