***world binturong day - saturday, may 11*** come along on saturday may, 11th, to learn more about binturongs. we will be selling popcorn for $1 with proceeds going to abconservation. wildlife hq will also be offering 2 for 1 encounters with our binturongs on the day!

wildlife hq is home to two magnificent male binturongs, jazzy and sari. binturongs are probably the most unique and little known species housed at wildlife hq. binturong originate from sth-east asia and are referred to as ‘bearcats’, although they are not bears and not cats. they are an arboreal species living in dense forests. they are considered to be a keystone species due to their ability to have a big impact on seed dispersal and germination. sadly due to habitat loss, poaching for meat and the pet trade and also for use in traditional medicines, binturongs numbers are decreasing. they are listed as vulnerable to extinction. @the_big_pineapple #wildlifehqzoo #wildlifehq #zoo #thebigpineapple #bigpineapple #visitsunshinecoast #seeaustralia #thisisqueensland #binurong #binturongday

Did you know that in the wild, meerkats create extensive burrow systems to keep them safe from predators and to also provide a refuge from the harsh african sun. you can learn more about meerkats at our daily talk at 11am. @the_big_pineapple #meerkat #wildlifehqzoo #wildlifehq #zoo #thebigpineapple #bigpineapple #seeaustralia #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland

Today is world earth day.
this year's theme is 'protect our species'. the unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides to name a few. the impacts are far reaching.

if we do not act now, extinction may be humanity’s most enduring legacy. (earthday.org)

their future is in our hands.
