We are very happy to announce that we were granted funding for our Bearcat Study Program by the Conservation Commission of the Association Française des Parcs Zoologiques (AfdPZ, the French Association of Zoos). Founded in 1969, the AfdPZ aims to unite zoological institutions with a common goal, in particular to encourage them to comply with the Ministerial Order of March 25th, 2004, which states the three main missions for zoos: Conservation, Education and Research. It also promotes the AFdPZ Ethic Code and an investment in the conservation of biodiversity. For ABConservation, this grant represents the recognition of our program by all the French zoo members of the AFdPZ. A huge thanks to the AfdPZ Conservation Commission! We are very proud to be able to count on their financial support.
