Your pandas will be cared for at the Gengda Center, the Bifengxia Center and the Dujiangyan Center all in southern China’s Sichuan Province. Pandas require very special care so they must be in a Panda Center. Staff at the centers work around the clock to care for the pandas. Extensive diaries are kept on each animal’s weight, feeding and general health. The ratio of staff at Hetaoping, Bifengxia, and Dujiangyan is one caretaker for every two pandas.
*All sponsorships will not be charged for shipping.
