Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 152511793) - Chinese Pangolin - Awarded $12,000 on December 09, 2015
09-12-2015 - Chinese Pangolin

The world’s pangolin species are at risk of extinction due to demand for their meat and scales. Our project dissuades Vietnamese and Chinese consumers from purchasing pangolin products by debunking the false medicinal value of their scales, making the consumption of pangolin meat socially unacceptable, and building capacity for more effective enforcement of trade bans. Reducing demand in these markets will help alleviate poaching pressure.
