The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is easily the cutest place on the planet right now. It is a breeding center and a nursery specially dedicated towards replenishing the diminishing panda population in China.
There were only about 1200 pandas in the 1980s. They were on the “endangered” list for decades. However, due to the efforts of this facility, the panda population has flourished once again, and they have been taken-off the endangered species list.
This facility has a dedicated team of members working around the clock for the care and upkeep of the adorable baby pandas. They not only take care of the breeding, but also provide interactive activities for the visitors to teach people about pandas and their protection.
Their base itself is a sight for sore eyes. Apart from the ever-cute nursery, the place is brimming with the sight of pandas in every corner, some of them playing, while others walking, climbing, eating bamboo, or even sleeping on a tree!
