This afternoon a pangolin was found with a quite badly cut up head and face. The victim of an attack by poachers. Pangolin are another wonderful and ancient species under threat due to ongoing demands for traditional medicines even though they are scientifically proven to have no actual medicinal value!
He is in a fairly bad way but we are doing what we can to pull him through.
|Pangolin curl up to protect themselves. Not much help against poachers with machetes!|
