Volunteer work is beneficial and meaningful. It generates experiences that enrich your life and might also give you the edge when applying for jobs or higher educations. To volunteer in a foreign country is likely to be even more rewarding and horizon broadened. Bifengxia Panda Base in Sichuan is looking for volunteers to work as the Giant Panda Husbandry Learner (GPHL). Being a learner, you will assist the Panda Keepers to take care of the pandas and help with the researches in the base. You will prepare food, clean the room for the pandas. You will also help collecting data of them.

Sichuan is inhabited over 60% of the Giant Pandas on earth. The Giant Panda is an endangered and one of the cutest animals in the world. Volunteering at Bifengxia will give you access to the most intimate life of them.

The whole volunteer program is for a week, starting from Sunday.

Day 1 you will arrive at Chengdu, Sichuan. There will be a guide pick you up at the airport and lead you to the hostel Traffic Inn Chengdu.
