The Beijing base of the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda is set to commence operations next year, with 50 giant pandas planned to be introduced, according to local authorities.

The base, which will cover about 133 hectares, is being built in the Qinglonghu Forest Park in the capital's Fangshan district.

The first phase of the project, occupying 43 hectares, will bring in 40 pandas, as well as companion animals such as golden snub-nosed monkeys and red pandas. It will also include the construction of a giant panda cultural exchange center.

First proposed in 2016, the base will be dedicated to biodiversity conservation, with the aim of creating a harmonious environment for giant pandas and visitors.

It is expected to promote the coexistence of humans and nature and contribute to national giant panda breeding and conservation efforts.
