The World Binturong Day takes place every year, on the 2nd Saturday of May.
It takes place every year on the second Saturday of May. This year, it will take place on Saturday May 13, 2023 and it will already be the 9th edition! Last year no less than 50 establishments from all over the world celebrated this day with us. In addition, each year, ABConservation is present at La Ménagerie du Jardin des Plantes in Paris for the organization of this special event.
