AAdopt a Pangolin from the Born Free Foundation

Adopt a Pangolin from the Born Free Foundation

Adopt Pangi.  She was rescued as a baby, and she was dehydrated and underweight.  Today, thanks to loving care and regular bottle-feeds, she is strong enough to climb a tree, hunt ants to eat and sleep in a tree fern.

Your adoption will help look after Pangi at her home in a small eco-lodge in the Congo Basin. As well as helping to fund her daily care, you'll also help look after other pangolins as well with your adoption :-) 

Illegal trade in South Asian means that that pangolins are one of the most trafficked animals in the world.  Every day, 10 pangolins die every hour for their scales and meat.  They are eight species of pangolin,  and they are all on the IUCN Red List - that's the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, which lists all the animals threatened with extinction on a Red List.

Pangolins are one of the world's endangered species. They are unusual, so if you're looking for a gift for someone who has everything, this could be a good gift idea.  You can adopt a pangolin from the Born Free Foundation for £2.50 a month.
