The plight of the pangolin.
“I became obsessed with the plight of these shy creatures, in Namibia, staying at REST, where Maria looks after endangered species. On my return to the UK I was very fortunate to speak with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, going forward together, with the same aim of saving the Pangolins”
How You Can Help Pangolins In Need
Tell your friends and family about pangolins. In recent years, more people around the world have learned about pangolins and the threats to them. This has directly led to more support for policy reform, scientific research, and more conservation efforts. You can help by spreading the word about pangolins and how they’re in trouble.
Pangolins are uniquely covered in tough, overlapping scales. These mammals eat ants and termites using an extraordinarily long, sticky tongue, and are able to quickly roll themselves up into a tight ball when they feel threatened. Eight different pangolin species can be found across Asia and Africa. Poaching for illegal wildlife trade and habitat loss have made these incredible creatures one of the most threatened groups of mammals in the world.
