The oxytocin hormone gets released and makes all fuzzy and warm. It also helps us manage our anxiety and helps keep our fears buried deep down. So, the China Panda Association thought of utilizing this very aspect of hugging on Giant Pandas. They have been offered jobs in this arena for the past year. Not only are they offering a simple job but also at a lucrative salary. The salary is about $32,000 per year. They mostly expect white collar people to come forward for this job.

This job is not that heavy on stress like the corporate ones. Hope this endeavor of hug Panda concept is a rage among youth and helps Panda bring out from the claws of extinction.
