Back to the Festival des Rives et des Rêves
Despite a heatwave , nothing stops us! We were present at the Festival des Rives et des Rêves to present the bearcat from 29 to 30 June. This event took place in the heart of the « parc du peuple de l’herbe » (park of the grass people) ! This park whose the project is born in 2010, in the Yvelines department at Carrière-Sous-Poissy, has a pre-emption zone of 113 hectares by way of Espaces Naturels Sensibles (sensitive natural areas), an insect home and an Observatory. It’s the biggest natural area of the department, and it is dedicated to the preservation of the biodiversity (particulary insects), the « Parc du Peuple de l’herbe » is a place of discover, walk and leisure activities between Seine and nature.
The Festival des Rives et des Rêves is the occasion to raise awareness amongst a large public about the nature through games and concerts. The festival-goers discovered the binturong through the animation of a giant goose game on the theme of the bearcat. Some people have been so excited that they even wanted to replay! Most of them did not know anything about this animal and were surprised to learn that he smells like the pop corn . The bearcat masks were red-hot in sort we were out of stock!♀️♂️ A lot of binturong have been seen wandering in the festival!
A big thank to Arnaud, Camille, Claude and Thibaut for their precious help during this intervention! And also thank you to the organisers of this event : the Communauté Urbaine Grand Paris Seine & Oise !
