Therefore, China set up many Breeding and Research Bases to provide an ideal and most suitable natural living circumstance for the Chinese Giant Panda, the base in Sichuan Province is included.
The Sichuan Panda Base locates 10 km away from the city center, in which there are over 100 rare wild animal species, including the giant panda, the red panda, the white stork, the white swan, the black swan, the Grus nigricollis, the peacock and the mandarin duck etc, and more than 300 rarely seen higher plants. To provide a clearer picture of the giant panda and to make people pay due attention to the protection of the endangered wild animal, a series of exhibits of the basic information about giant panda is conducted in the 7000 m2-wide base.
