Dujiangyan Panda Base and Center for Disease Control
Dujiangyan (Chinese: 都江堰; pinyin: Dūjiāngyàn) is approximately 55 kilometers (34 miles) from Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan province. Dujiangyan is home to the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project – the world’s oldest diversion project without a dam which is still in use today. Mount Qingcheng, dominating the Chengdu plains to the south of the Dujiangyan Irrigation System, is said to be the birthplace of Chinese Taoism. And it is also here that you will find the Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Pandas (CCRCGP) – Dujiangyan Giant Panda Base.The Dujiangyan Giant Panda base is located in Shiqiao (Stone Bridge) Village of Qingchengshan Town. The Dujiangyan Panda Base covers an area of about 51 Hectares (126 acres), and enjoys a favorable climate and natural environment with vast bamboo forest coverage and lovely scenic surroundings.
Bifengxia is Chinese for “Green Peak Canyon.”
As the program at the Wolong Center continued to grow, not only was the center becoming crowded, but the threat of an outbreak of disease or infection was of great concern. If an epidemic were to occur among the captive Giant Pandas at the Wolong Center, it could destroy the entire population. Splitting the captive Giant Pandas of Wolong into two separate populations was planned to prevent this from occurring.Construction of the Bifengxia Panda Center at Ya’an City, Sichuan Province began in October of 2002. Before construction, the Bifengxia base was a maiden forest with no power, no road and no housing. Dr. Tang Chunxiang, Assistant Director and Chief Veterinarian, described the base as a “blank paper, waiting for great events to occur.”Like the Wolong center, the Bifengxia Giant Panda base is a branch of the China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda, (CCRCGP) Wolong Nature Center, under the Department of Forestry. The Bifengxia center was completed in 2003 and covers nearly 400 hectares, which is about 988 acres.Bifengxia was planned to house mostly sub-adults not yet in the breeding program and senior pandas, too old for breeding. However, a small breeding area was constructed in addition to the hospital.Since Bifengxia has more land, the Giant Pandas are spread over several different areas: Leopard Mountain, New Leopard Mountain, Bai Xiong Ping, Bi Tang (quarantine area), the Kindergarten and nursery, breeding center, Research Center and Hospital. The enclosures are large with indoor and outdoor areas.
