Complete trade ban on pangolins


Delegates at the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Johannesburg voted to ban all trade of the endangered pangolin (all 8 species), the world’s most heavily trafficked mammal.

The committee agrees all pangolins – African and Asian – move to appendix I, CITES said in statement, referring to the convention’s highest category of protection, which bans all international trade.

Thai van Nguyen, our winner of 2016, director of Save Vietnam’s Wildlife, is a great fighter against pangolin trade.
