Happy World Pangolin Day!

Happy World Pangolin Day ❤️

There are actually eight species of pangolin, four in Asia and four in Africa.

Pangolins are one of the most endangered species on the planet and are at risk of extinction.

Today gives pangolin enthusiasts an opportunity to join together in raising awareness about these unique mammals.

Pangolin numbers are sadly rapidly declining in Asia and Africa.
The demand for pangolins comes mostly from China, where pangolin scales are unfortunately believed to be a cure-all of sorts and pangolin flesh is considered a delicacy. In Vietnam, pangolins are frequently offered at restaurants catering to wealthy patrons who want to eat rare and endangered wildlife.

There is no evidence to support claims regarding medicinal properties of pangolin scales or any other part of the pangolin. To see how you can help save the Pangolin from extinction,
