Help Save Two Species of Endangered Pangolins in Nepal

Pangolins are the world's most trafficked species. Without urgent action, the pangolin will soon become extinct.

Pangolins were declared the world's most trafficked species in 2016. They are hunted by poachers for their meat and scales, traded on the black market for consumers who believe pangolins and their fetuses are culinary delicacies and have medicinal properties, particularly in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. If nothing is done, pangolins will soon become extinct.

The Indian and Chinese pangolin, two species of pangolin found throughout the Siwalik foothills of eastern Nepal, are especially threatened. Lack of public awareness and education about the endangered status of these pangolins and the ecosystem services they provide is the main reason for their decline. Laws meant to protect pangolins are not being enforced. Extreme poverty is also driving the illegal trade markets.
