Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding and Research Center, located in the north suburb of Chengdu in China, is 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Chengdu city. Now it has become the main base nationally for protecting the rare endangered wild animals such as pandas.
In the beginning, there were only six pandas rescued from the wild field when it was built, however, the number of the pandas have successfully increased by more than 70 for over 20 years.
The center houses abundant information and exhibitions on pandas, which is a quick way to know about the life of pandas. Besides pandas, there are other endangered wild animals in the center, such as black-necked cranes, white storks and peacocks which are fed and bred in this center all throughout the year.
The number of pandas is very rare in the world, so pandas are considered endangered wild animals by all the states where pandas are kept. In China, the giant pandas only are distributed in Gansu Province, Shanxi Province and Sichuan Province. There are no more than 1,000 pandas in total in China, of which 80% are fed and bred in Sichuan Province.
