    Anyone out there with practical experience of African Pangolins? Looking for research support from a reputable organisation. We are doing the very best we can and all are prepared for re-release.

    Hello there RRR. You'll fine that this community is almost entirely made up of zoo enthusiasts and fanatics more than people with experience of handling wild animals, let alone something as rare as a pangolin. A very, very minuscule amount of members have their own zoo and while there are others who work at zoos, I highly doubt any of them would have any information that could benefit your study. Still, I wish you luck with raising funds for this venture and once more welcome to the site :).

    Thank you for this Pachyderm!! As you rightly say terribly endangered and a huge challenge to rehabilitate............we need all of the support we can get.

    This is really cool. Let us know if there's anything an inexperienced individual can do to help your organization, in addition to donating :)
