These specialised pangolin boxes are used to comfortably hold and transport pangolins that have been recovered from poachers and get them safely to veterinary health checks, treatment and rehabilitation as well as moving them to their release sights. Even though they my not look it, these are very important pieces of equipment. The wooden walls have to be thick enough, that the pangolin can't break through. (Their claws are built for digging through ground as hard as cement). They must also be spacious enough that the pangolin can move freely for its comfort and provide the right amount of ventilation as well as shelter.

A box like this one costs R1400 (£65) and as you can imagine, the maintenance to keep it safe and strong for a rescued pangolin is also ongoing, so in support of our partnered pangolin rehabilitation centre we are looking for pangolin box sponsors so that we can help provide them with the equipment they need to care for these vulnerable animals

You can either provide a new box for a once off donation of R1400 (£65) Or you can opt for a monthly sponsorship of R120/month (£6/month)

In return for your generosity, you can name your box and we will also send you regular updates on any pangolins who take a ride inside

Helping species whose existence hangs in the balance!
