Bifengxia is Chinese for “Green Peak Canyon.” Construction of the Bifengxia Panda Center at Ya’an City, Sichuan Province began in October of 2002.  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. Currently there are 58 total enclosures at Bifengxia and has grown to about 144 staff members.  The center has embraced it’s growing role in the survival of the giant panda.  The pandas have trained staff on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
