Adam Rifkin stashed this in Pandas!
Sponsored by the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, or Chengdu Panda Base, and co-sponsored by WildAid, Chengdu Pambassador is a global program offering panda lovers around the world the chance to become a "panda ambassador" (or Pambassador) for a year. As a non-profit organization engaged in wildlife research, panda breeding, conservation education and educational tourism, the Chengdu Panda Base is looking for partners to help raise awareness for the plight of giant pandas. This is where our Pambassadors come in.
This year, the Chengdu Panda Base will launch "PandaQuest", a competition starting on Facebook and continuing through to on-the-ground events around the world and in Chengdu to create awareness about panda conservation and the Chengdu Panda Base's goal to return pandas to the wild. Throughout the competition, participants will need to complete a variety of tasks to prove themselves worthy of becoming a Pambassador.
Each Pambassador will visit the Panda Sanctuary at the Chengdu Panda Base to learn about the conservation, research and breeding efforts carried out in Chengdu to help preserve giant pandas in China.
