The non-profit organisation
ABConservation is the only organisation in the world entirely dedicated to the study and protection of the binturong, a small mammal of Southeast Asia. Little known or studied by scientists, everything remains to be done and the challenge is daunting! We are working both in Europe and in the field in Asia to promote, inform, educate, share, study, and protect the binturong.

Our missions are simple:
- Study binturongs, by doing research in zoological institutions, which is called ex situ research, but more importantly by conducting studies in the binturong’s natural environment, which is called in-situ research. We are currently running our own program in the Philippines, the "Bearcat Study Program", but we are also working with researchers in Laos and Indonesia.
- Raising awareness,through interventions in schools, zoos and festivals in France.We are also creating events about the binturong, such as the World Binturong Day, or about environmental protection, particularly in the Philippines in the context of our new program « From Awareness to Actions for Nature Conservation ».
- Sharing our passion, our knowledge and skills with other conservation stakeholders during conferences, but also with the general public via social networks , news on our blog, and educational interventions.
- Protect binturongs, and above all the environment, through partnerships with Asian wildlife rescue centers and our study and conservation program in the Philippines .
