With Binturongs being a species that have become a popular in our collections around the UK, as well as the success of the virtual binturong workshop that ABWAK held, we wanted to bring an in-person workshop. ABWAK are working with ABconservation & Dudley Zoo to bring you this exciting event. If you are working with binturong or your collection are thinking of housing binturong in the future than this workshop is for you.
This workshop will offer keepers talks slots, alongside presentations from Abconservation about the work they do for binturongs. The day will also include a tour of the facilities at Dudley Zoo, as well as workshops on how collections could host World Binturong Day events.
If you are interested in presenting, please contact James Cork, [email protected] with a description on the topic you would like to present.
Content to include:
- Binturong biology, ecology & conservation status.
- The work of ABconservation
- Discussion sessions on diets, breeding, and enclosure design.
- Update from the Binturong EEP.
- Running World Binturong Days at your collections.
This venue has limited capacity and we expect high demand for tickets, so will therefore be open to animal keepers only.

Cost for ABWAK members £25,
Members of BIAZA collections £35,
Non-members also welcome £45.
Refreshments and lunch are included in the price.
