Introduction
Passionated about wildlife, I did my vet thesis on the Binturong, Arctictis binturong, in European zoos. I fell in love with this animal and decided to involve in its conservation in the wild. I am now living in the Philippines to lead there the research program of ABConservation on this amazing species and gather knowledge that could be usefull for further conservation programs.

Article
The Binturong Arctictis binturong is an elusive and poorly known carnivore of the family Viverridae, found in South East Asian ecosystems, which is affected by diverse human‐related threat processes. This paper reports on the collaborative efforts towards the conservation of the species by the Binturong European Endangered Species Programme (EEP),...

Although remote camera-traps are used worldwide for ecological studies, the methods of use are often based on ground-level detection. This inherently limits the ability to detect arboreal species. This study aims to test arboreal camera trapping as an alternative method to improve the detection of the binturong ( Arctictis binturong ). We obtained...

The binturong or bearcat is a forest mesocarnivore ranging from Nepal to Indonesia and the Philippines. Several subspecies of binturongs are recognized but a revision is needed. The binturong from Palawan was described as a species and is now considered a subspecies, but its status has never been checked using molecular approaches. Owing to its res...

Camera-trapping methods are well known and are used in many types of environmental studies. However, when placed at ground level camera traps are limited to recording terrestrial species and are limited in their ability to record data on bird and arboreal mammals. In this study, we aimed to test a method of arboreal camera trapping by installing th...

Dans un futur proche il faudra nourrir neuf milliards d’êtres humains. Il est nécessaire de trouver des moyens d’augmenter la production tout en respectant le bien-être animal. Deux alternatives se profilent avec d’une part l’utilisation des biotechnologies et d’autre part, le retour à un élevage plus « traditionnel ». Ces deux concepts sont-ils ré...

Since 2017, ABConservation has started a research and conservation program of the Bearcat, Arctictis binturong, in Palawan Island, Philippines. We deployed camera-traps in several sites, using the technic of arboreal camera-trapping to improve the detection of the Bearcat. We should soon start radio-tracking of individuals to gather data on their behaviour and ecology.
