If you have ever found yourself wishing for a daycare facility that is filled with giant panda bears, you are now in luck. You will just need to save up for a plane ticket to China.
The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding has been established to give the giant pandas a place to play and enjoy their lives. Of course, they also spend most of their days looking adorable.
This facility provides more than daycare, though. It is currently one of the cutest places on the planet and we are not sure what the runner up would even be.
It would take a lot for any facility to match the level of adorableness on display here. There are other purposes being served here, too. This “daycare facility” also serves as a nursery.
It is a breeding center and their goal is a simple one. They are looking to replenish the world’s population. Giant pandas are being wiped out at a rate that is hard to fathom.
These bears were once on the endangered list and now they are coming back strong. Back in the 1980s, the population dwindled severely. There were only 1,200 living giant panda bears at that time.
After a great deal of time and effort, they were finally removed from the list back in 2016. Their population is now approaching 2,000, according to New York Times studies.
They have since been moved up to the vulnerable list but there is still much to be done. These animals are going to need help if they are going to survive over the long haul.
Since their natural habitat is currently in a state of decline, it is time to take action. These locations are incredibly important to the future of the giant panda bear.
Human encroachment is causing these animals to become extinct and it is high time that we took the necessary steps to put a stop to it. If the habitats aren’t improved, the aforementioned victories will be short-lived at best.
The Chinese government is being urged to take the necessary precautions so that the giant pandas can be introduced to the wild without fear. The facility has been open for over 30 years and has come a long way from its humble beginnings.
Can you believe that they started out with just six pandas? Please share this story with your closest friends and loved ones. Excuse us while we start Googling Chinese plane tickets.
