"Be the guardian that walks with the wild ones" - Petro Diamant

The Pangolin Trade is the illegal poaching, trafficking and sale of pangolins and parts of pangolins. The animals are trafficked mainly for their scales.

Representatives of 182 countries unanimously enacted a ban on the international trade of all Pangolin species by moving them to Appendix I. Appendix I includes species threatened with extinction. Trade in specimens of these species is permitted only in exceptional circumstances. It is illegal to trade Pangolin. Read about CITES Appendices HERE
