Our affiliate friends, Going, have something to offer that will entrance almost anyone: volunteering at a panda reserve in China. When has this kind of option ever appeared on your list? Founded to increase funding for research bases, the Panda Volunteer Program can last from a day to a few weeks, though most visitors (including the author) sign up for a day experience. The author, Kay Kingsman, chose the Wolong National Nature Reserve for her because it is home to a “panda kindergarten,” which is a big playpen full of panda toddlers. And, in countries like China, where pandas are a national treasure, visiting a panda reserve provides insight into local culture and the significance of these animals. And eating entirely on bamboo, up to 38 kg per day, they certainly keep things lively. It can be an enriching cultural experience in addition to a fun one. Want to get in on the excitement?
