Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries

Located in the southwest province of Sichuan, China, Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries, home to more than 30% of the world’s pandas which are classed as highly endangered, covers 924,500 square kilometers with seven nature reserves and nine scenic parks in the Qionglai and Jiajin Mountains. The sanctuaries constitute the largest remaining contiguous habitat of the giant panda, a relic from the paleo-tropic forests of the Tertiary Era. It is also the species’ most important site for captive breeding.

While the giant pandas take the spotlight, these sanctuaries also serve as a refuge for other endangered species like the red panda, snow leopard, and clouded leopard. The region boasts an impressive biodiversity, hosting approximately 5,000 to 6,000 species of flora, making it one of the botanically richest areas outside of the tropical rainforests. In fact, the area shares similarities with the paleo-tropic forests of the Paleogene and Neogene Periods.
