presents –

World Pangolin Day (WPD) 2022, themed: “Community Action for the Conservation of Pangolins

World Pangolin Day is celebrated yearly, on every third Saturday in February. It is an opportunity for pangolin enthusiasts to join together in raising awareness about these unique scaly-skinned mammals and their plight. Unfortunately, Pangolins are killed and trafficked in great numbers. All eight species of the Pangolins are considered threatened with extinction, according to International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). IUCN categorises Pangolins from vulnerable to critically endangered!

The 2022 edition of the WPD celebration is set for February 18 & 19 for awareness carnival and WPD celebrations in Epe, Lagos State, Nigeria.
