Conservation of pangolins in South Africa

Species threats

Although large predators, starvation, fires and possibly disease pose a threat to wild pangolins, the vast majority of threats facing pangolins today are of a human origin.

Law Enforcement

The African Pangolin Working Group works very closely with law enforcement organizations with information, training, on the ground collaboration, and testimony.

Report a sighting

The APWG is mapping the past and present distribution of all pangolins in Africa. We welcome sightings of any pangolin species from any year and any country.
