Challenge

300+ pangolin are taken from the wild every day for their scales, blood and fetuses which are believed to have "magical" medicinal properties in Asia. Most pangolins recovered from the illegal wildlife trade are in a very poor condition both physically and mentally. They are kept confined in a bucket, box or bag and not eaten or drank in days, sometimes weeks as their captors seek a buyer. Some are abused, kicked or thrown by their captures, causing trauma that requires additional treatment.

Solution

Pangolins are not easily raised in captivity. There is no artificial food source they can eat and so they must be walked daily to forage for food, which makes pangolin rehabilitation a long and costly process. It is imperative that every life is saved to ensure the survival of this amazing and shy species before it is too late.

Long-Term Impact

This project provides safe and secure housing, professional veterinary care and dedicated staff that provide the best possible care to rescued pangolins throughout their rehabilitation process as well as post release monitoring to ensure their safety and health after release in the wild.
