Sangha Pangolin Project

Dec 14, 2023

Situated in Dzanga-Sangha National Park, and based at the Sangha Biodiversity Lodge, this project is focused on rescuing pangolins from the illegal wildlife trade and releasing them when healthy. The lodge has received a large number of live pangolins from the bushmeat trade, which have been rehabilitated as best as possible and soft released. Pangolins have become an urgent conservation cause for us, and we aim to protect and to increase the knowledge about them. The founders hire 50 local Ba’Aka hunters who subsistence hunt in the area to run the hotel and help with construction and conservation. They also run projects in research and education of locals.
