Did you know that pangolins are the most illegally trafficked mammal in the world?
They are wanted for their scales, their meat, their skin - and despite legislation, illegal trafficking of these animals continues. There are a number of charities and wildlife trusts working to help pangolins - and you can help them by adopting a pangolin, either for yourself or as a gift adoption!
You can also take a look at Pangolin Corner which has more ways of how you can help pangolins!
Adopt Marimba and help DSWF save pangolins by funding crucial anti-poaching and community outreach work in Africa. You can even add a handmade pangolin toy to your adoption pack - it's individually made by a women's community group in Zambia. Making these toys gives the women, who live close to wildlife, an alternative income. (Photo left copyright of Andrew White.) Adopt Marimba now
Raya was rescued back in September 2020 from Tbong Khmom province, which isn't far from the capital, Phnom Penh. Raya only weighed in at 1.5 kg, but she was active right from the start. Her health was assessed at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre and after the vets there gave her a clean bill of health, Raya came to live at the Wildlife Release Station. Sponsor Raya here
Rolly sadly cannot be released back into the wild because of the loss of a limb, so climbing and hunting for food will be difficult. Sunny lost a hind leg so she also needs to stay at the centre, where she is an Education Ambassador for the centre. Adopt Rolly or Sunny here.
