    I'm looking for organizations and possible tours for wildlife spotting in Sichuan. I've only come to know birdwatchers, anyone else out there?

    I know that the 蜀明 tomb museum, across from Chengdu University, has what is apparently a wildlife refuge. Its extremely beautiful, and signs that hash runners have been through there, from the chalk mark on an old door. But it has a lake, and a nice amount of open space, as well as a number of signs advising visitors about wild animals (in Chinese), might be a nice place to start.

    Has anyone been to Changtan Lake? I wonder if the buffalo I saw in pictures is wild.

    That tomb is closed to the average visitor. the park is ok, almost deserted. seems like nobody ever goes there during the week. the wild ducks in the grassland are huge. I'd prefer to have a mountain bike to get there and back and bike around as public transport takes forever and taxi is like 40 kuai one way.
