ADOPT A PANGOLIN

Pangolins are the only mammals known to have plate-like scales; when threatened, they roll up into a ball, with the scales forming an armoured exterior. The scales are made of keratin (the same protein that makes up human hair and nails), which hardens as the pangolins reach maturity.

Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked mammals.  With high levels of hunting and poaching for the illicit trade in their meat and scales (for traditional medicines in Asia – primarily in China and Vietnam), there has been a dramatic decrease in pangolin populations over the last 15 years.  Deforestation of their natural habitats is also an issue.

YOUR ADOPTION WILL HAVE A MASSIVE IMPACT

Funds from your adoption will support our work at Sangha Lodge in the Central African Republic. The lodge is working to help wildlife in need, caring for animals and supporting the community. Your adoption will also support our ongoing camapign to raise awareness of the plight of wild pangolins, plus investigations into illegal poaching and the illicit trade in pangolin by-products.  You can help ensure the future of wild pangolins by adopting Pangi below.

 

PANGI

Pangi was only young when she was found dehydrated and underweight. Following her rescue she gradually recovered and is now cared for in a small eco-lodge in the Central African Republic.

Help us care for wild pangolins.

 

Your support is changing the lives of threatened animals around the world.  Our work would not be possible without you!
