Dujiangyan Panda Base

The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda Dujiangyan Base, also known as "Panda Paradise" and "Dujiangyan China Giant Panda Garden", was built with the aid of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government in 2009. It is located on Huaizhong Road, Shiqiao (Stone Bridge) Village, Qingchengshan Town, 18 kilometers away from Dujiangyan city. The base covers an area of about 51 Hectares, and enjoys a favorable climate and natural environment with vast bamboo forest coverage and lovely scenic surroundings.

Dujiangyan Panda Center

Dujiangyan Panda Base gives its major support to the panda pension, the rescue of the wild giant pandas and the research of disease control. Currently, this panda sanctuary is the world’s only giant panda disease control center, and has been the "nursing home" to more than 10 giant pandas. According to the base, the number may be increased to 40 for years to come. Pandas 25 years old or older and those rescued from the wild will reside here.
