This Panda Daycare Is The Most Adorable Thing You’ll See All Day

The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China is on the cutting edge of giant panda research. With only around 1,800 giant pandas left in the wild, the captive breeding program at Chengdu plays an important role in ensuring that the species can survive long-term.

 

The baby pandas born here are cared for by specialized staff in what essentially amounts to a panda daycare. Needless to say, it’s ridiculously adorable.
