How to help on World Pangolin Day
With World Pangolin Day coming up, we’ve had lots of questions from people asking how they can help. We wanted to cover a few of the ways that you can help Pangolins from the comfort of your own home…
Pangolins are the most trafficked mammal and yet many people are not sure what they are. They’re not a pokemon or an armadillo!
We need your help to raise awareness of Pangolins and the issues they are facing. They need to be spoken about as much as elephants or rhinos! Here are 5 pangolin gifs to get you started.
Become a wildlife champion
Wildlife Champions will help ZSL tackle the trade in endangered species, protect habitats, educate the next generation about the importance of protecting wildlife, and lead the way with conservation breeding.
This year, #pumpit4pangolins challenge you to do 20 abdominal crunches and donate £5.00 to pangolin conservation (donate here) before World Pangolin Day. Proceeds will be used to support on the ground pangolin conservation led by Save Vietnam’s Wildlife. Once you have completed the challenge upload the video with hashtag #pumpit4pangolins and nominate four of your friends, family or work colleagues to do the same!
