Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 182518261) - giant pangolin. - Awarded $6,000 on May 01, 2018
01-05-2018 - giant pangolin.

In Cote d’Ivoire, the giant pangolin may now only be found in Taï National Park. This species faces a very high risk of extinction from local bushmeat hunting and poaching for illegal international trade, in addition to historic habitat loss. We will establish a critical baseline of behavioural ecology and ethnological knowledge as the foundation of a national giant pangolin management plan.
