Today as we give recognition to World Pangolin Day, we share information about this truly incredible mammal; often referred to as the ‘wise old man of the bush’
Lapalala Wilderness is working with the African Pangolin Working Group (APWG) to assist with the soft release of rehabilitated Temminck’s pangolin. Our dedicated team, guided by APWG-trained monitors, records movement, weight changes, and feeding success before permanent release takes place. Lapalala is a haven where the pangolins get a second chance to be free and thrive.
