The Panda Research Center in Chengdu, located in southwest People’s Republic of China, and the World Wildlife Fund have joined forces to promote environmental and wildlife protection by choosing Panda Ambassadors, or Pambassadors.
Sixty thousand people from around the world applied, with 12 semi-finalists now in Chengdu being trained. From those 12, the final six ambassadors will be chosen. The six lucky “Pambassadors” will have a full month with the pandas at both the center and in the wild. As part of their ambassadorial role, they will document their experiences.
