Sichuan Bifengxia Panda Breeding Base （四川碧峰峡大熊猫繁育基地）
Opened in 2004, Bifengxia Panda Breeding Base is a giant panda breeding facility in Ya'an, Sichuan Province for raising and breeding, protecting the species and increasing the panda population. It is the world's largest center for captive pandas, home to more than 80 of the animals.
The base is divided into six zones including the feeding area, breeding area, research area, office area, bamboo area and living area. Currently there are 12 baby pandas ranging from 5 months to 9 months living in the "kindergarten."
The Overseas-born Panda Paradise in Bifengxia live six pandas born outside of China, such as Tai Shan born at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington D.C., and Su Lin and Zhen Zhen from the San Diego Zoo.
Each year, more than 1,000 people from all over the world apply to be volunteers at the base. Volunteers typically work from a few days up to three months.
