Our Pangolin story started at home in Zimbabwe in the early 1980’s, when rescued Pangolins were brought to us by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife for rehabilitation and release.
These gentle and inquisitive animals enchanted us as we accompanied them into the night when they would search for ants. At sunrise, they would roll themselves into a ball, protected by a golden-brown cloak of scales. We were absolutely captivated by their unique morphology and affectionate nature.
Today, the Pangolin is the most trafficked mammal in the world and without our full attention and protection, it will disappear from the wild.
