Photo/text via @paulhiltonphoto: the future of so many species is in our hands, we decide on what the future looks like. for this baby pangolin it got to live another day but for so many of its own species die a terrible death in the name of traditional chinese medicine (tcm), for its scales and meat. although there is no evidence that they have any medicinal value, it’s just like biting off your own finger nails and swallowing them, pangolin scales are made of the same material, keratin. the human race is insane, why would we keep eating pangolins? support photographers against wildlife crime, buy a book to learn more visit. www.photograpersagainstwildlifecrime.com#savethepangolin#wildaid#lovetheleuser#worldpangolinday#racingextinction
Today is #worldpangolinday and we're grateful for @paulhiltonphoto’s dedication to saving this incredible species.
small and scaly, pangolins are the world's most illegally traded mammal and in danger of extinction. while these armored creatures once inhabited vast portions of asia and africa, their populations are severely dwindling due to a massive and growing demand for their scales, which are believed to have curative properties in east asian medicine, and their meat, which is highly regarded as a symbol of status. #racingextinction
