The 18th of February was World Pangolin Day!

Here at Shaldon we are pleased to be supporting the One More Generation campaign!

Just download one of the images below of a blank pangolin, colour them in, then send them to the zoo! Here at SWT we also support a program called the Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Program, and by submitting your colouring you will be entered into a prize draw to win an adoption of one of our beautiful Owston's Civets, another ambassador for Vietnamese conservation.

You can send your entries by post to:

Shaldon Zoo, Ness Drive, Shaldon, TQ14 0HP

or attach it in an email to:

julie@shaldonwildlifetrust.org.uk 

Your work will also be sent to the OMG campaign, where it will be placed on a banner and displayed at Hartsfield International Airport, along with other banners from around the globe. Happy Colouring!

 

5 Facts About Pangolins:

 

Pangolins, also known as scaly anteaters, are unique creatures that are covered in hard, plate-like scales

To protect themselves, they curl into balls like hedgehogs.

They are the most trafficked mammal in the world because people want their meat and scales.

A pangolin’s tongue can be longer than its body when fully extended is can be 40 cm long!

Pangolins have large, curved claws that they use for excavating ant and termite nests
