What It’s Like to Intern in Ya’an

Given that we are accepting applications for the Winter/Spring 2015 Panda internship, we thought it would be appropriate to share some of our past experiences from our time in Ya’an, China. Even though the majority of an interns time will be spent at the panda base collecting data, there is still ample time to enjoy all the sights, sounds, and tastes that the city has to offer.

Ammo Exchange Updates

Our first non-lead ammunition exchange was a success. We owe a special thanks to the Collector’s West Gun & Knife show for donating the space at their Vancouver event. Additionally, Sportsman’s Warehouse was able to significantly reduce the cost of their ammo, allowing us to provide more boxes of the ever so popular upland-game steel-shot, to the gun show participants. We ran out of ammunition in 3 hours!
