Celebrate World Binturong Day 2020 with Wild Wonders
Join Wild Wonders in a very special Zoom celebration in honor of World Binturong Day! Each year, our partner Arctictus Binturong Conservation hosts a day featuring all things binturong, and updates people on their conservation efforts in the field. This year, the date is May 9, and our broadcast will occur at 12 noon, California time.
As you know we have 5 of these amazing creatures, and they have a special place in our hearts. Since we can’t host an event at Wild Wonders due to the stay-in-place and social distancing orders, we’ve decided to showcase our ambassadors in a 30 minute all-binturong Zoom session.
You’ll see them being fed, enjoying their enrichment, and showing off some of their agility skills. We’ll show an excerpt from our “Day in the Life” binturong movie from our YouTube channel which talks about the challenges they face in their habitat in Southeast Asia.
As a special treat, we’ll provide all participants with a version of our Binturong Activity Kit, enhanced especially for this event.
To participate, you’ll need to download the free Zoom software onto your computer, tablet, or phone. We’ll send you the meeting link and you’ll just need to click on it to join. Grab the entire family, pop up some popcorn (if you don’t know why, you’ll learn during the Zoom presentation), and gather around to watch this special event.
The cost is $20 per connection (computer, tablet, or phone). Zoom will support 97 simultaneous connections, so reserve your spot today!
