What’s your dream job? The one thing you’ve always wanted to be? Well, trash that thought. Move over, firefighters, astronauts, teachers, or whatever else you hoped to be because panda cuddler is better than any job in this world!
At China’s Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Ya’an, a caretaker will earn $32,000 a year.
They will have the use of an SUV and get free meals and accommodation. All they have to do is cuddle pandas for 365 days a year. The job is being dubbed the “Chinese version of a caretaker of an island on the Great Barrier Reef”.
Organizers say the job only has one mission:
“Spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows.” The organization is looking for people at least 22 years old who have basic knowledge about pandas as well as the ability to write well and take pictures.
