Help Save Pangolins from Extinction!

Pangolins are already almost gone in Asia — now poachers have begun taking this highly endangered species from Africa at alarming rates. If these shy, easily stressed creatures continue being killed at this pace, their extinction will be inevitable.

Pangolins are currently protected under Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), which prohibits them from being traded commercially on the international market. However, some countries are now arguing that because the specimens in their stockpiles were collected before the species was listed on Appendix I, they should be allowed to sell them.

Fight back against the sale of pangolin stockpiles today!

Call on the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to protect Pangolins from extinction.

Subject line: Fight back against effort to allow sales of pangolin stockpiles


Dear U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service:


I'm writing to urge you to ensure the strongest possible protections for highly endangered pangolins.


As you're aware, pangolins were included on Appendix I of CITES in 2017, prohibiting them from being traded commercially on the international market.


But some countries are now arguing that because the specimens in their stockpiles were collected before the species was listed on Appendix I, they should be allowed to sell them.


With pangolins being poached at alarming rates we must act now to bring them back from the brink of extinction.


Please submit a document to the CITES Secretariat opposing this dangerous proposal and do all that you can to uphold the ban on all commercial trade of pangolins.
