CCRCGP Dujiangyan Base

( Updated: 2014-02-21 15:31

The Dujiangyan base of the China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda was built in 2011 with financial support from the Hong Kong SAR government following the May 12, 2008 Sichuan earthquake and officially opened in March 2013.

Located in Shiqiao village, Qingcheng Mountain township of Dujiangyan city, the panda base is modeled on a typical western Sichuan folk house style filled with bamboo and grass. The area also has an excellent ecological environment, plenty of edible bamboo for pandas and a pollution-free water source.

Covering a total area of 506,667 square meters and a construction area of 12,542sm, the base consists of six functional zones: rescue and quarantine; disease control and research; rehabilitation, training and feeding; reception and education; natural vegetation and service.

As China's first research base for the rescue and disease control of wild giant pandas, the base can help or manage rescue work of up to 40 giant pandas at a time. The first batch of 10 injured pandas moved into the base at its 2013 opening.

Dujiangyan Base will open to tourists this year.
