Panda-Monium

If you like the idea of taking a month off work, travelling to China to study (i.e. play with) giant pandas, and then come back and blog about your experiences, keep on reading. (If you don't, please seek professional help.)

The
World Wildlife Federation (WWF) in China just launched a worldwide competition to find six Panda Ambassadors – or “Pambassadors”– to promote the cause of panda conservation around the world.

In order to apply, you must be between the ages of 18 and 40, have good writing and communication skills, be physically fit (and free of illegal substances) and be able to secure a tourist visa if selected.

From the gazllions of applications “
Project Panda” receives, 12 semi—finalists will be selected to fly to China for a week of training. Then, six lucky “pambassadors” will be chosen to spend a month at the Chengdu Panda Base studying the bears’ habits and witnessing the birth of ridiculously cute panda cubs.

You’ve only got until September 5 to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime gig. Click
here for more information and to get your “pambassador” application.
