Evolution of Chengdu Giant Panda Base
Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base is established on the basis of raising, treating and breeding giant pandas in Chengdu Zoo. In the 1980s, Fargesia FRIGIDA in Qionglai mountains blossomed and died. Some giant pandas were rescued and concentrated in Chengdu Zoo for lack of food and hunger.
In 1987, in order to strengthen the treatment and management of sick and hungry giant pandas, separate the education and display functions of giant pandas from the rescue research functions, strengthen the scientific research on giant pandas, and improve the breeding level of giant pandas, Chengdu Municipal People's government decided to establish a research base for giant panda breeding in Chengdu, and implement a set of team and two brands with Chengdu Zoo.
After 1990, Chengdu base and Chengdu Zoo were divided into two independent entities.
In 1992, the giant panda museum was opened to tourists.
In 1997, Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base jointly funded more than 15 million yuan from the State Planning Commission, Chengdu Municipal Planning Commission and Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Foundation to establish the first open laboratory in China to carry out research on the conservation of China's endemic endangered species.
In 2000, the national wildlife protection system took the lead in carrying out public protection education, and the Ministry of science and education was established.
In 2001, the open laboratory was named "Sichuan Provincial Key Laboratory of reproduction and conservation genetics of endangered animals" by the Department of science and technology of Sichuan Province. In the same year, Chengdu base cooperated with Sichuan University to carry out research and experiment.
In 2003, the base was awarded the "advanced talent development unit of Sichuan Province" by the Sichuan provincial Party committee and the provincial government, and was awarded the national "post doctoral research station" by the Ministry of personnel of the people's Republic of China.
In 2006, it was officially awarded "national AAAA scenic spot" by the National Tourism Administration.
In 2007, the laboratory was officially approved by the Ministry of science and technology of the people's Republic of China as "endangered wildlife biology State Key Laboratory jointly constructed by the Ministry of science and technology of the people's Republic of China". At the same time, modern giant panda museum, animal specimen museum and gene resource bank of endangered animals have been established in Chengdu base and Sichuan University respectively.
In 2011, the "International Research Center for giant panda conservation biology" jointly established by the base and the global science foundation was also established in the base.
In September 2014, the base was awarded the honorary title of "national advanced collective of technical talents". On October 1, the base Dujiangyan breeding and wild releasing Research Center - "panda Valley" was opened to the public.
On April 20, 2015, "panda Valley" officially opened to the outside world.
In April 2019, it jointly launched the southwest tourism scenic spot alliance with 8 units including Chengdu Wuhou Temple Museum and Chengdu Dufu thatched cottage museum.
