One of the alternatives is the Chengdu Panda Breeding Research Centre which is still a zoo but more similar to panda’s natural habitat slightly higher up the mountains outside Chengdu. A lot of the Breeding Centre’s area is natural forest designed to make the animals at home whilst protecting them and encouraging the population to flourish to then be reintroduced into the wild.

Forests of bamboo are cultivated to feed the inhabitants. Lesser pandas, red pandas, storks, black necked cranes and other rare natives are also part of the centre’s population.
