Pangolin friendly farm fencing
One of the main threats facing pangolins in southern Africa is their accidental electrocution on electrified fences. Studies have found that as many as 1,000 pangolins may be killed on these fences every year in South Africa alone, possibly overshadowing the illegal wildlife trade as a threat to pangolins in this region.
In an effort to drastically reduce the number of pangolins that are accidentally electrocuted on electrified fences in South Africa each year, Pangolin.Africa, in collaboration with several other organisations and companies, is currently working on a ground-breaking new system that we believe will drastically reduce – if not entirely prevent – pangolins and other vertebrate mortalities related to these fences. Field trials have recently begun and we will be sharing more details on this exciting venture in the near future.
