The giant panda is an endangered species whose childlike charms have captivated so many people. Nicknamed “living fossil” and “national treasure,” it is the mascot of the World Wildlife Foundation. Sichuan is a natural habitat of the giant panda, and 85 percent of the 1,000 or so giant pandas living in this world are found in Sichuan, which is the site of all but two of China’s 18 giant panda nature reserves. A giant panda breeding and research center is in northeast Chengdu, and the World Wildlife Foundation has founded its Giant Panda Research Centre in Wolong Giant Panda Reserve, 136 km from Chengdu.
