  • Rescued Pangolin released on the International Biodiversity Day

    An Indian Pangolin (Manis crassicaudata) was rescued on the night of 21st May, 2019 from the Industrial area in Samdrup Jongkhar. Acting upon the tipoff from the local people, Mr. Ugyen Chophel (Dzongkhag Beautification Officer) and I rushed to the site and rescued a healthy male Pangolin, trying to encroach into the human settlement. It was immediately taken to the Forest Office and kept in the captivity for its safe release on the next day.

    As per the literature, the Indian pangolin is a solitary, shy, slow-moving and mostly nocturnal, and terrestrial mammal. This species is listed as Endangered A3d+4d due to the hunting and increasing levels of poaching, principally for its meat and scales, both for local use and for illicit international trade in scales, which has also occurred historically (International Union for Conservation of Nature [IUCN], 2013).
