World Pangolin Day is on 20th February

Every year, World Pangolin Day is observed on the 3rd Saturday of February. (The 20th of February, 2021). The lack of adequate data is one of the problems in protecting this species. In their entire range, little is known about the security status and behaviour patterns of Indian pangolins. 
♦ In 3 coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh, part of the Eastern Ghats, pangolins are commonly found. 
♦ In collaboration with Save Pangolins and the US Pangolin Crisis Fund, the Eastern Ghats Wildlife Society (EGWS) launched an immediate security status survey to obtain critical data on the presence of species of pangolins and relevant human threats. 
♦ In order to understand their views on the rural communities next to the pangolin habitat, EGWS is collaborating with locals. They hope to convey understanding among all major stakeholders of the threatening status and protective significance of Indian pangolins. 
♦ EGWS is a non-profit organisation that, through education, conservation-focused research, public engagement, institutional capacity building and sustainable growth, promotes community-based wildlife protection in the Eastern Ghats of South India. Its vision is to safeguard the Eastern Ghats` biodiversity by bringing the public into harmony with nature. 
It is a small, toothless, sticky animal which lives in hollow trees and caves and thrives on ants and termites. The pangolin can roll into a tight ball when attacked, exposing its scales to prevent predators from attacking. But the reason why pangolins have achieved endangered status has been these scales. These scales are known to have medicinal properties. Therefore, to remove the scales, these pangolins are picked from the forest and boiled to death. This species is legally protected by Schedule I of the 1972 Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act and is also listed by the International Union for Nature Conservation as "endangered" (IUCN). There are 8 pangoline species, including Indian pangolins. These all prove that its population is declining.
