This adorable video shows a bunch of panda babies, rough housing on a bench, and sliding down a slide into the snow at the the Panda Kindergarten at the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base outside Chengdu, China. What fun!
There’s a lot more pandas can do with a slide. See them on page 3
This world-famous ecological park and breeding research center is dedicated to protecting and conserving many native Chinese endangered species, like the Giant Panda and the Red Panda. Started in 1993, the Giant Panda Research Base offers visitors a unique glimpse into the lives of pandas who usually live in remote bamboo forests high in the mountains. With the continued destruction of their natural environment, the Panda Base was created to mimic the panda’s natural habitat and give researchers a place to breed and study them.
