The ongoing drought is not only affecting the local flora and fauna, but even our precious Honeybun, who has been steadily losing weight. Ant and termite populations are decimated, and we are receiving numerous reports of aardvarks and pangolins close to urban areas, desperately looking for food. We are all working day and night to walk further, more often and late into the night to ensure our pangolins' survival. Thank you all for your continued support! #namibiandrought #battlingdrought #toughtimes #pangolinconservation #africanpangolinconservation #antsandtermitesdisappearing #wildlifesuffering #conservation #honeybun #pangolins

Pangolin poaching on the rise, researchers say. Reports of tons of scales found during various wildlife trade busts earlier this year and statistics of one pangolin poached every five minutes paint a dire picture. YOU can help by spreading awareness about these amazing animals to make sure everyone in the world knows they exist, to increase pressure on governments to enforce regulations and combat the illegal trade. https://www.enca.com/life/pangolin-poaching-rise https://www.awf.org/blog/2-million-pangolins-are-poached-every-year-scales-and-meat Photo credit: Julia Pouteau #pangolins #savethepangolins #combatwildlifetrafficking #pangolinconservation #pangolintrafficking #honeybun #africanpangolinconservation

It's weekend and we hope you're as relaxed as Amos! 😴 This stunning picture was shot by Julia Pouteau of the Wild Immersion Project - if you haven't yet, go check out this fantastic virtual reality film project endorsed by Jane Goodall: https://www.wildimmersion.io/ and @wild_immersion. Julia's main platform to collaborate with REST in fundraising and education projects is @worldwildproject but she also supports us by linking up artists who donate their creations (pangolins, aardvarks and the like) via @worldwildarts. Stunning artwork, thank you Julia and all the talented artists! We will be auctioning off some of it at the end of the month in a Facebook auction, so stay tuned for more details. #africanpangolinconservation #artforpangolins #pangolins #endangeredspeciesconservation #wildimmersion #worldwildarts #worldwildproject #janegoodall #christmasshoppingforconservation

Wonton Extinction. Its a play on words of course. It should be spelt "Wanton" but a "Wonton" is a tasty little asian treat. There are some highly credentialed documentaries about these beautiful and gentle little animals (including one hosted by Sir David Attenborough) which document how their population and continued existence is under serious threat due to their being harvested to death ! ...for the sake of ancient "mythical" asian health remedies. There are also many still photos documenting the problem including an award winning and disturbing photograph called "the pangolin pit" taken by wildlife photojournalist Paul Hilton. All of which paints a bleak outcome for these unique and endangered little mammals. My personal view is that the threat to the pangolin is so disturbing that people who aren't already aware of their plight should be and ok... The truth is, my take on this issue and the politics imbedded in my artwork might be overly simplistic but it’s just a conceptual piece by (me) in the interests of helping propogate a strong and passionate ( global) sentiment about how tenuous their continued existance has become. As higher order mamals its encumbent on us to respect and protect lower order species. We dont own the planet.

Pangolins are the only mammal in the world that is completely covered in scales, which is also the reason why they are disappearing. Poachers hunt them and sell the scales on the black market. #impacter Francois Meyer and @africanpangolinconservation help save pangolins that have been confiscated from the illegal trade.

Pangolin cuteness! Incredible to believe that this young male Temminck's pangolin was retrieved out of the trade. It's been a few weeks now and he's doing so well.

The African Pangolin Working Group was the first Non Profit Organization dedicated solely to the conservation of pangolins in the world, established in 2011. Our Board do not benefit from salaries via funds donated to us, that goes to pangolins, their care and their survival. It is upsetting to see so many desperate species being exploited for personal human financial gain. This stunning image taken by @kudumeyer finalizing is MSc on the survival and distribution of pangolins we retrieved out of the illegal trade...a completely groundbreaking body of work that has global implications towards the conservation of all eight pangolin species #pangolinrehab #pangolins #pangolinsg #africanpangolinconservation #saveourpangolins

✨Pango Tango!✨ ✦ Such incredibly good news that there’s a brand new dance to celebrate! ✦ “Below is a link to a remarkably heart warming story about the reintroduction of Pangolins into the Kwazulu Natal area in South Africa,” announces photographer and conservationist, Gareth Thomas. “A lot of you asked me if there's anywhere you could see, or look for Pangolins in the wild...well, now there is!” ✦ https://www.andbeyond.com/stories/wildwatch/the-return-of-the-pangolin/ ✦ “And all of this is made possible through the efforts of the @africanpangolinconservation,” Gareth adds. ✦ “Isn't it just so f♤♡◇ing great to see people doing amazing things like this!” he exclaims. ✦ “I've not seen a Pangolin in the wild myself,” admits Thomas, “so it looks like I'm going to be heading down to @andbeyondphinda soon!” ✦ Gareth, we’ll be watching for your photo essay on these amazing and Critically Endangered species. ✦ Pangolin scales are made of keratin, the same material that makes up fingernails, hair, and horn. Pangolin scales, like rhino horn, have no proven medicinal value, yet they are used in traditional Chinese medicine to help with ailments ranging from lactation difficulties to arthritis. Of course, they don’t work and never have. It’s all just primitive superstition. ✦ A recent CITES estimate, based on observations in six countries, suggests that between 400,000 and 2,700,000 pangolins are illegally hunted annually in Central African forests. These amazing creatures are the most poached animals on earth. ✦ 📷 + 🗣 Gareth Thomas @maverick_gareth ReGram: @maverick_gareth 🔹 Follow African Pangolin Conservation Working Group—> @africanpangolinconservation for more exquisite images and updates on pangolins To support—> africanpangolin.org/contribute ♥️ 🔹Follow photographer Gareth Thomas on Instagram—> @maverick_gareth for more stunning wildlife images ✦ #pangolinconservation #pangolinrehab #love #africanpangolinworkinggroup #pangolin #savepangolins #conservation #beautiful #africanpangolinconservation #instagood #extinctionrebellion #wildlifephotography #photography #naturephotography #life #smile #biodiversity #photo #picoftheday #photooftheday #happy #protectourspecies

Pangolins are often referred to as a "species" whereas they are in fact a unique Order, the Pholidota made up of 8 species. Evolved from a common carnivore ancestor similar to a domestic cat 85 million years ago in what is now North America. We'll shed more on their evolution in a series of upcoming posts. .

Our research strongly suggests that pangolins retrieved out of the trade required (1) appropriate hospilisation, (2) full rehabilitation, (3) soft extended release, (4) post-release monitoring for up to 6 moths.

A privilege to attend the premier screening to the stunning documentary the Eye of the Pangolin by filmmakers Bruce Young & Johan Vermeulen on Friday night in Cape Town. A beautiful film highlighting the mystery and beauty of these shy solitary mammals and the desperate plight they face. It is free to view on YouTube now! Please have a look and share widely . . . #africanwildlife #africanpangolinworkinggroup #africanpangolinconservation #savepangolin #pangolinconservation with @shannonelizabeth

Blackbellied pangolin drinking water. Watch this blackbellied (or longtailed) pangolin drink water. The video was taken at Sangha pangolin project in the Central African Republic where research is taking place and where confiscated, orphaned or injured animals are being rehabilitated. #Pangolin #WhiteBelliedPangolin #sanghalodge #sanghapangolinproject #WildlifeConservation #Pangolinconservation #CentralAfricanRepublic #EndangeredSpecies #StopPoaching #WildlifeRehabilitation #AnimalRehabilitation #AfricanAnimals #eyeofthepangolin #pangolintrust #africanpangolinconservation

Ten year ago today I had a run-in with government, but fortunately things ultimately worked out well for me (despite the stress!). I featured in a cartoon in the Sunday Independent at the time of the debacle. #flamingo #flamingos #lesser_flamingo #kimberley #kamfers_dam #northerncape #ornithology #ornithologist #honestofficials #victory_at_the_courts #court_victory #whistle_blower #greasy_palms #northgate #EIA #10th_anniversary
