This little gentle mammal is a pangolin - the worlds most trafficked animal. 100,000 pangolins are poached every year from across africa and asia, with most shipped to china and vietnam, where their meat and scales are sold. as a result, all eight species of pangolin now feature on the iucn red list of endangered species. #savethepangolin

More than 100,000 pangolins are poached every year. their meat is considered a delicacy in china and vietnam and their scales are used in traditional chinese medicine. they are also a source of traditional medicine throughout africa.
.
“pangolins are one of the oldest mammals on earth. a pangolin weighing just 3kg can help protect roughly 16 hectares of forest from being overrun with ants. protecting pangolins is not just about saving an endangered species, but also about healthy ecosystems.” – the nature conservancy china chief conservation officer zhao peng.

when the buying stops, the killing can too.

Gene simmons may be famous for his long tongue, but he's got nothing on the pangolin! this adorable walking artichoke has a tongue that reaches over 40cm long when fully extended. perfect for slurping up ants and termites! πŸ‘…πŸœ

Their scales are no more medically beneficial than our fingernails, yet this belief is pushing the pangolin to the brink of extinction. support ngos working to save the species and educate communities:

This was such a privilege. one of the most endangered animals in the world, a pangolin, walking on its two hind legs (it's bipedal). this gorgeous lady is a cape/ground pangolin, hiding out at a wildlife sanctuary on the outskirts of harare. being lucky enough to see her unique b****y features, her unutterably adorable little face, her quiet dignity, has undoubtedly been one of the highlights of my trip so far. the fact that there are people who want to take her life away from her, endangering her whole species (pangolins are the most trafficked animals on the planet) for f*****g quack remedies is something that sickens me to my core. hoping that somehow, against all odds, humans might quit at being so s**t and that at some point in the future, beauties like this won't need to seek refuge in sanctuaries.

Regrann from @dswt - pangolins are sweet and shy little creatures. they’re also one of the world’s most trafficked animals: every five minutes, a pangolin is snatched from the wild for its scales and/or meat.
because of their tougher-than-nails scaly armor, pangolins are all but invincible in the wild; when threatened, they roll up into a ball that even lions can’t penetrate. however, they are no match for human exploitation — and that’s where we come in. the pangolin is one of the many wild species that our dswt/kws de-snaring teams are working hard to protect through their daily patrols. in july, our team confiscated 400 pangolin scales and apprehended two people responsible. seizures and arrests like this serve as a b**w to the trade, and also drive home how important it is to have boots on the ground to protect our increasingly vulnerable fauna and flora.

to donate and help our field teams protect threatened species like the pangolin, please visit:

#repost @vietnamwildlife with @get_repost we have had some new born baby pangolins!
three pangolins gave birth shortly after being rescued. unfortunately, the mothers were too tired and stressed due to terribly poaching activities, we weren't able to take care of the babies. lacking of care and nutritious milk of their mothers, the babies could not survive, regardless our vet's effort to handrear them.
pangolin is the hardest animal to be farmed in the world.

Of the 2000 people surveyed in the uk by the wwf, only 8% could correctly identify a pangolin when shown a photo. this is not unusual. the most trafficked mammal in the world is also one most people have never heard of.
.
up to 2.7 million pangolins are being killed every year, with the most conservative estimate being 400,000 a year.
.
even though their scales are made up of keratin—the same protein that makes up our hair and fingernails—they are believed to hold medicinal value, and thus are trafficked for their use in traditional medicine. pangolin meat is also considered a delicacy in china and vietnam.
.
a baby pangolin will often hitch a ride on its mother's tail or back, like in this video from @tikkihywoodtrust . to protect pangolins like these, you can support @tikkihywoodtrust & @vietnamwildlife

This rescued pangolin looks adorable all bundled up. exhausted, dehydrated, and in critical condition, the volunteers at @vietnamwildlife are keeping him warm to help with his recovery.
_
a total of 78 rescued pangolins were recently taken to the center where they will receive a lot of attention and care until they are strong enough to be released.
_
follow and support this dedicated group of people in vietnam who care for pangolins and other endangered wildlife rescued from traffickers.

"keep him warm."
it was a critical care for the pangolin after rescuing. he was exhausted and dehydrated. after a great effort of the vet, he has been recovering.
we have brought 78 recent-rescued pangolins to our center and they do need lots of attention from us. wish them healthy and strong!

This cute little animal is called a pangolin. similar to anteaters, it has a long sticky tongue that it uses to eat ants and other insects, and like armadillos, it can roll up into a tight ball that is impenetrable to predators when threatened. interestingly enough though, it’s closest living relatives are not the armadillo or the anteater. they are the animals from the order carnivora, which includes all cats, dogs, bears, etc. it is also the only mammal that has scales. it’s scales are made of keratin, and they use them for defense and protection. however, while most of you have probably never even heard of the pangolin, they are the most trafficked animal in the world, and all 8 species are quickly headed towards extinction. illegal wildlife trafficking is a major cause of endangerment and extinction of many plant and animal species, but many people feel there is nothing they can do as individuals to help. we unknowingly support the wildlife trade everyday. most of it is legal and regulated, but a lot of it is illegal and harmful. please visit this website to find out seven things you can easily do to help stop the illegal wildlife trade and save many animal species, such as the pangolin! https://www.ecohealthalliance.org/2017/10/7-ways-you-can-help-stop-the-illegal-wildlife-trade #pangolin #conservation #illegalwildlifetrade #savethepangolin #stopextinction

Is this life just your experience of a single consciousness or are we a billion headed beast exploring every possible outcome simultaneously? are we trapped somewhere else embodied in a illusion of reflection? considering how we treat each other and the animals i’d say our demeanor towards a.i would only follow suit. what then is the chance the creator we serve is the same? we may be nothing but someone else’s source of energy in a #deepdream of their devious design. πŸ”Š@waterchild :night in tokyo (ft ethan evans)

The other day i discovered that the pangolin exists which was amazing! then i also discovered they are one of the most poached animals in the world, which was not so amazing. hopefully by spreading some awareness of these cute little fellows we can help save them! check out @pangolinconservation if you’re interested in learning more about them! πŸœπŸŒΎβ˜€οΈπŸ§‘ #pangolins #endangeredspecies #savethepangolin #naturalhistoryillustration #sketch #pencildrawing #graphite #drawing
