Scaling Up to Save the Pangolin

Pangolins have walked the earth for 80 million years, as insect eaters who provide an important role in our ecosystem. Yet today, Pangolins are believed to be the most trafficked mammals in the world. They are trafficked for their scales, which are made of keratin like our fingernails and rhino horns.

Pangolins are as a result fast facing extinction.

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show we hear from Maria Diekmann of the Rare and Endangered Species Trust and Dr. Chris Brown of the Namibia Chamber of Environment, about how you can help save the Pangolin before it’s too late.

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show we find out:

  • What makes the Pangolin unique
  • Why they are a critical part of our ecosystem
  • The measures being taken to find Pangolin poaching here in Namibia

You can report any suspicious activity related to the killing or capture of Pangolins or the trade in Pangolin parts to 081 413 2214 or 081 423 2231. Cash rewards are being given for information.
