Pangolin.Africa is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the survival of the most highly trafficked wildlife species on the continent – the African Pangolin.
Through our three-pronged approach of Publicity, Participation and Protection we are working with partners in the tourism, conservation and corporate fields to increase education and awareness around all four African pangolin species; contribute towards much-needed research; and implement protection and rehabilitation projects on the ground.
We also play an integral role in bringing together and supporting other individuals and organisations across Africa who are working in the pangolin conservation space.
Are you keen to get involved by donating to help save pangolins but not sure where to begin? Browse through our selection of handpicked pangolin conservation initiatives which need your support. These projects are operated by Pangolin.Africa as well as other partner organisations and all. Funds received go directly to the project featured.

What’s a Pangolin
The secretive and elusive pangolin is probably the most unique, yet unknown animal in the world. There are four pangolin species in Africa, each with their own special features, habits and characteristics. Click below to learn more about these amazing creatures.
It’s difficult to protect a species when you don’t have much data on its numbers or whereabouts. You can help our research partners across Africa to gather more information by simply recording your pangolin sighting on WhatsApp! Save this number in your phone right away
