Background of Chengdu

As China's "National Treasure", the giant panda is one of the rarest animals in the world, currently with a total number of 1500 and plus in the wild, 80% of which are in Sichuan Province. A breeding center for giant pandas was founded on the north suburbs of Chengdu. It is the only one of its kind on the earth that has its location in a metropolis. For the protection of wild giant pandas, Chengdu also has established a few nature reserves in Dujiangyan City, Chongzhou City, and Dayi County. Sichuan Wolong Giant Panda Nature Reserve, the biggest of its kind in the world, is only 130 km from Chengdu. The Western world came to know giant pandas only after a French missionary named David first discovered this species in Sichuan Province, in 1869. Now, the somewhat crumsy lovable giant panda is a symbol not only for World Wildlife Fund, but also for world peace and friendship. They are also a messenger of friendly communication between Chengdu and other cities abroad. Currently, there are giant pandas being reared in the U.S.A, Germany, Austria, Japan, as well as Mexico.
