Pangolins

The most trafficked and persecuted animals on the planet – 62 tons of scales were sold on the world markets last year and numbers are now critical.  Rhino Revolution are receiving rescued pangolins from thwarted poachings and rehabilitating prior to release. This is extremely difficult and challenging work and without dedicated staff these persecuted creatures would certainly not make it back into the wild.

Some of the individual stories behind these rescued pangolin can be found under the Vet Nurse Diaries section of this web site.
