The giant but gentle panda, an icon of China, is an endangered species threatened by loss of habitat and low birth rates. In the leafy mountains of Sichuan province, help prepare pandas cared for in captivity to return to the wilderness where they will bolster the population. Plus explore Shanghai, Xi’an and Beijing with local experts. Road Scholar is offering this special Service Learning program in cooperation with Earthwatch Institute, a non-profit organization engaging people worldwide in field research and education.
