For the second time, ABConservation was invited to participate to the Week-end of the Conservation, organized in the Parc de la Tête d’Or in Lyon, by the « Amis du Zoo de Lyon ». On the 13rd and the 14th of May, two volunteers and the president of the association worked raise public awareness, beside great associations such as Kalaweit or Helpsimus.
Despite a cloudy sky on Saturday, but a wonderful sun all Sunday, visitors were very interested and motivated to learn more about our mascot, especially children, very curious to know this special species.
Introduction to the species, quiz, make-up, goodies selling and explanations in front of the enclosure of Boka, our team, which has got the hang of such week-end, divided up in between the several activities in order to offer a complete program to the visitors of Lyon. And for our happiness, even more visitors knew about the bearcat before coming to see us. Some has already came previous year on our stand and wanted to know more about the news of the association.
This week-end, under sharing and conviviality, has allowed us to meet beautiful people, who, we hope so, will help the conservation of this wonderful species to move forward!
We want to thank warmly the “Amis du Zoo de Lyon” to offer us to take part to this edition of the Week-end of the Conservation.
With the World Binturong Day, the Week-end of the conservation opens the season of our interventions in zoological parks! You could join us La Boissière du Doré on the 10th of June, at the Zoo of Amnéville on the 15th of July and at the Zoopark of Trégomeur on the 23rd of July.
