Let’s face it, nobody really enjoys work all that much. You may be lucky enough to love what you do for a living, but when you see what these panda caretakers get up to you’ll be left green with envy. Located at the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in China a lucky few get paid 32,000 USD a year to look after baby panda’s, giving them all the hugs, attention and love they require. Sounds good right?
It’s not all fun and games however, according to China Daily the caretakers are expected to be extremely committed, “Spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows. You need perseverance for this job. We expect that the applicants will be mainly white-collar workers from big cities. They are used to eating whatever they want, but inside the giant panda base, the choices will not be plentiful.” Despite the serious commitment involved, spending an entire year with these adorable bundles of fur doesn’t seem so difficult, especially when you checkout the video below.
