Pangolins are the world’s most illegally traded mammal. It’s easy to feel helpless, like there’s nothing you can do to make a difference. But Pipisin Pangolin’s got a few ideas of things you could do to help pangolins…
Like real pangolins, Pipisin Pangolin stands on his hind legs. So I thought I’d try to make a little felt pangolin – this is the result. If you can have a go at making your own pangolin companion, I’ve drawn the pattern and written what I did.
Pangolins belong in the wild. They are sensitive souls and shouldn’t be kept in captivity or as pets. Only the wildlife organisations that rescue pangolins from the illegal wildlife trade and care for them until they can be released back into the wild have the specialist knowledge to be able to look after them. Find out about pangolin conservation by following organisations like Save Vietnam’s Wildlife, Rest Namibia and Libassa Wildlife Sanctuary.

Help Pipisin Pangolin get ready for Christmas. His tree needs more decorations and his jumper is too plain for the festive season.
