How You Can Help
Pangolins have the dubious honour of being the world’s most trafficked wild mammals, with more than a million believed to have been snatched from the wild in the last decade. Here are some easy ways to help save the pangolin.
Spread the word – tell your friends, family and colleagues all about these amazing creatures.
Donate to champion pangolins and receive a special pangolin pack with fun facts, badges, stickers and a project guide.
Don’t buy pangolins or pangolin products – this includes live pangolins, pangolin meat, wine, scales and leather. Don’t be tempted to purchase these items – by doing so you are fuelling the illegal trade.
Report wildlife crime - If you see pangolins or other wildlife being illegally sold in restaurants or other business establishments, or on social media, contact your local authorities.
