When we receive pangolins rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, they often need intensive care and it can be a long and fraught road to recovery.

So it’s always a great relief for our dedicated animal care team to see the pangolins in our care starting to exhibit their natural foraging behaviours again. It takes a lot of effort to get these animals the nutrition and strength they need before they’re released back into the wild.

As the world’s most trafficked mammal, pangolins account for as much as 20% of all illegal wildlife trade and are now threatened with extinction. Learn more about #pangolins this #WorldPangolinDay by supporting our work rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing these threatened animals with a symbolic adoption.

We appreciate the technical support and guidance given to us by the Tikki Hywood Foundation. Our work rescuing pangolins and combatting their illegal trade is supported by Fondation Segré, Woodtiger Fund, Pangolin Crisis Fund, and Sallyann Garner.
