  • On 1st February, a container was seized in Hong Kong containing 8.2 tonnes of scales from over 14,000 pangolins. 
WWF is actively working to reduce the demand for illegal wildlife products in countries like China and Vietnam. 
We’re also working with TRAFFIC in Asia and Africa to protect pangolins from wildlife crime, and calling for greater protection under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species @cites #ProtectPangolins #WorldPangolinDay #Pangolins #StopPoaching #SavePangolins

  • Pangolins are the most heavily trafficked wild mammal in the world. You can help us to protect this unique creature from the edge of extinction.

Always refuse pangolin-based medicine or meat, and report anyone you see or know trading in pangolins or their parts.

Share this video and raise awareness on your own social channels, and ask your government to do more to protect pangolins.

  • Pangolins are the world’s most heavily trafficked wild mammals. 
The demand for pangolins comes mostly from China and Vietnam, where their scales are used in traditional medicine and their flesh is considered a delicacy. 
Pangolin scales are made up of keratin - the same as human fingernails and hair. But in traditional medicine they are believed to cure arthritis, boost male virility and promote breastfeeding in mothers.

  • Time is running out for pangolins. This spiny anteater is under threat from poaching, despite a total international trade ban.

It’s estimated that more than a million pangolins have been killed for their scales and meat in the last decade.

Populations of Asian pangolins have declined by 80% in the last decade, and traffickers are increasingly turning to African pangolins.

  • This adorable animal is a pangolin. A pangolin’s tongue can be longer than its body! They use their sticky tongues to catch ants and termites.

Pangolins are solitary nocturnal mammals with scales all over their bodies. If threatened they roll into a ball to protect themselves. But they’re under threat from poaching despite an international trade ban.

  • Who’s heard of this cute creature before? This anteater-like animal is a pangolin. They’re the world’s only truly scaly mammal.

But pangolins are also the most heavily trafficked wild mammal in the world, despite the fact that most people have never heard of them.

All eight species of pangolin are protected under national and international laws.
