World Binturong Day

Celebrate Arctictis binturong!








Join us Saturday, 14 May 2022, for the Animal Park’s celebration of World Binturong Day!

In celebration of all things binturong we have a full day of fun activities around this amazing keystone species. Our very own binturongs Jerry and Baloo will be our ambassadors for this species on 14 May 2022, World Binturong Day! 

Our Education Department has created some fun activities for guests of all ages to enjoy, such as word searches, crossword puzzles, and coloring pages. 

Binturongs are infamous for their unique smell of “popcorn” or “corn chips”—all tickets sold will be able to grab a free bag of popcorn from the Animal Park concession stand to celebrate this unique species!

Observe Our Animals At Your Own Pace

Because World Binturong Day is a self-guided, walkabout event, you can spend as much time as you want admiring the residents you find the most fascinating. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be stationed throughout the grounds to tell you about our animals and answer your questions. You can also take a break to enjoy some food, beverages, and activities in our green space.
