Goal: 30,000 Progress: 4,419
Sponsored by: The Rainforest Site

The binturong (or bearcat) typically lives in areas between northeast India and the Philippines, but its habitat is being greatly threatened by logging, agriculture, and the palm oil business.

Because this extremely rare mammal has been referred to as a "low-profile" species, it has, in turn, long suffered as one without protection.

Conservation groups want to help this incredible animal, but without proper knowledge, it is becoming increasingly difficult.

Unless we are able to learn enough about these animals and their habitats, they'll soon be in extreme danger because of what humans have done to their homes.

Sign the petition below insisting that Inger Anderson, Director General of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), further invest in trap cameras to help give conservationists the information they need to help the binturong!

Dear Director General Anderson

Forests across the globe are being torn apart by numerous industries, and the habitats of animals are suffering horribly because of it.

One such animal is the binturong.

The binturong is unique when it comes to conservation, however. Due to its elusiveness, conservationists like you and your organization are unsure of how to help the binturong through their loss of habitat. More than that, the binturong has been called a "low-profile" species, which to this point has meant that the binturong is low priority.

Luckily, it won't take much to learn about the binturong. With more funding for trap cameras, your team will be able to safely study this incredible mammal, and to develop conservation strategies.

Director General, I urge you: please allow this spending. The survival of the binturong depends upon it.
