Help Save Pangolins at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary

Help Save Pangolins at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary

Author -  Pops

Pangolins – the world’s most poached animals whose scales, bizarrely, are highly revered. Critically endangered, pangolin population numbers have declined by 90% over the past 21 years.

And at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary the plight of the pangolin is certainly not ignored. Recently our Marlice van Vuuren received a call from Namibia’s police force. An undercover detective had intercepted the sale of a pangolin in the vicinity of Windhoek, the perpetrators subsequently arrested.

Rescued from certain death, the pangolin was brought to the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary and given a thorough medical check-up. A harmless blue mark was applied to his scales in the hopes of us identifying our pangolin hero on camera trap images in the future.

Despite his traumatic ordeal - it’s suspected the magnificent animal was kept in a sack for up to a week with no access to water or food – he was deemed in good enough physical condition to reclaim his freedom right away. And reclaim it he did, scuttling away on the Zannier Reserve at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary

Being the world’s most hunted animals, their scales fetching exorbitant prices in the far-fetched belief they possess almost magical healing properties, the future may very well be tragically empty of these fascinating creatures!

It's the tragic plight of the pangolin!

You can help the Pangolins at the Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary! Spend 2 weeks to 3 months at this amazing sanctuary, owned by a very passionate couple who believe that where possible animals they rescue should be released back into the wild.

As a valued volunteer, you'll be involved in every aspect of the sanctuary, that has orphaned or injured animals which are treated, rehabilitated and if possible released. The Wildlife Conservation volunteers provide an important part in caring for and feeding the animals on a daily basis, as well as helping to maintain and develop the sanctuary.
