Pangolin.Africa is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of the African Pangolin – the most trafficked animal on earth. The organisation was founded by Pangolin Photo Safaris, who has committed to funding the operational needs of the NGO.
Conservationists estimate that one Pangolin is poached from the wild every five minutes due to the huge demand from the African and Asian traditional medicine markets. Asian Pangolin populations are being decimated and we cannot allow this to happen in Africa.
Through our three-pronged approach of Publicity, Participation and Protection, we work with partners in the tourism, conservation and corporate fields to support the conservation of the African Pangolin by increasing general awareness of all four African Pangolin species; contributing towards much-needed research and rehabilitation; and helping combat the illegal wildlife trade that is threatening the survival of this species.
We invite you to join #TeamPangolin and help ensure the survival of this species before it is too late.
We have all the tools you need to learn more about Pangolins and help us spread the word about this amazing creature and its current predicament. People need to know what a Pangolin is to care about saving it!
It’s difficult to protect a species when you don’t have much data on its numbers or whereabouts. Pangolins are such secretive and elusive animals that, up to now, all we have gathered is insufficient bits of data and stories of sightings. Visit our sightings page to learn how you can help us collect more information.
We have teamed up with several conservation NGOs, law enforcement agencies and other organisations in a joint effort to help save African Pangolins. Our aim is to positively promote their efforts on the ground and help raise funds for their continued operations.
