World Pangolin Day

World Pangolin Day was established to raise awareness about the plight of these unique mammals. Pangolins are the most illegally trafficked mammal in the world today, but also one of the least understood. Their populations are in steep decline, threatened by habitat loss and poaching for their meat and scales, which are used in traditional medicine. There are eight species of pangolin across Asia and Africa, five of which are are listed as either critically endangered or endangered. They are unique among mammals in that they have large, protective keratin scales covering their skin. Pangolins are nocturnal, feeding mainly ants and termites, and living in hollow trees or burrows. 

Celebrate the day by enjoying the following collection of artwork by AFC members. Many are for sale with a portion of proceeds pledged to conservation.
