Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding

With a population of less than 2000, Pandas are included on the endangered list and are protected by China’s Wildlife Protective Law as a special-class protected animal.

 

Chengdu has been the ancestral homeland to giant pandas since ancient times. Fossil records indicate pandas inhabited the area as recently as 4000 years ago.
