Do you know what a pangolin is? No, it's not a dragon! They are referred to as the artichokes of the mammal world, with their unique protective scales made from keratin, the same material as human hair and fingernails. The illegal trade in pangolins, to supply traditional Asian medicine, is causing the rapid decline of these animals. As smugglers exhaust the species’ populations in Asia, their foc...us increases on African species.

Pangolin Conservation is a non-profit organization founded to promote the conservation, education, and research of pangolin species.
