Adopt a Pangolin

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 a Pangolin from the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

Adopt Marimba and help the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (UK registered charity 1106893) 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; these toys are individually made by a women's community group in Zambia;  making the toys gives the women, who live close to wildlife, an alternative income.   (Photo left copyright of Andrew White.)  Adopt Marimba now

Chanti was rescued in May 2022.  A family discovered her wandering the streets of Phnom Penh with a severed back left leg.  They contacted the Wildlife Alliance's Wildlife Rapid rescue Team to donate her.   Chanti was taken to Phnom Tamao first, and then to the Wildlife Release Station - she's settled in well there.

Adopt a pangolin from Save Wildlife Vietnam

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.
