The Chengdu Research Base in China is most likely the most adorable place to work in the world plus it plays an important role in the survival of pandas.
This panda “daycare” is actually a specialized breeding center and nursery that seeks to breed new pandas to revitalise the dwindling wild population, which may be as small as 1,864.
Each panda cub is important, not just because of cuteness but because of just how difficult it is to breed pandas. Females are able to breed for only 2-3 days a year, and they only give birth to one cub every two years. Forest destruction in China’s Yangtze Basin region has also killed thousands of pandas by both eliminating their food sources and disrupting their homes.
However thanks to the efforts of Chengdu and organizations like it, the panda population has recovered by 17 percent in recent years.
Did we mention how cute they were?
