Volunteer in China
The volunteer abroad opportunities that most people choose to get involved with in China include teaching English, exploring the countryside and participating in panda and wildlife protection and conservation. The most popular cities to volunteer in include Shanghai, Beijing, Xi’an, and Chengdu.
Volunteering with children, you will be doing very meaningful work. Due to the Chinese law restricting citizens to only one child, many children are abandoned or adopted and put in homes. It is an unfortunate situation that demands a lot of oversight and extra care for these children, and volunteering to help out truly goes a long way.
China is definitely the best place to go if you are interested in volunteering in panda conservation. In the past, panda’s were on their way to being extinct. Due to concentrated efforts in reviving the species, the panda population, as of late, has been on the rise. The only way to keep this up, is to maintain these efforts of conservation, and continue to educate on the topic. The city of Chengdu is the best place to go to work with pandas. Known as the “country of heaven” or “land of abundance”, Chengdu houses a panda breeding and research center, well known to many. Choose to volunteer with the pandas and have the chance to explore the southwestern region and all of its treasures.
If you choose to volunteer in China, travel the land and experience the history and culture of the country. There is a lot to be learned in simply talking with people or enjoying a meal in multiple regions. China is an interesting place with never ending opportunities to learn, so volunteer in china and you will surely have the experience of a lifetime.

Feeding the pandas was an unforgettable experience. The pandas would rush to the entrance of the cage and lumber up to the front. My favorite panda, Susan, would hold a bar for support as she ate. They were so receptive and excited to get their special panda bread and carrots, relishing every bite.
