Welcome to the IUCN-SSC Pangolin Specialist Group website
We are pleased to present the official website of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission (SSC) Pangolin Specialist Group (PangolinSG).
The PangolinSG is one of over 120 IUCN-SSC specialist groups, Red List Authorities and task forces working towards achieving the SSC’s vision of “a world that values and conserves present levels of biodiversity.” Our group is comprised of a quorum of experts from around the world that leads efforts to study pangolins and the threats they face and devises conservation solutions to ensure the long-term survival of pangolins in both Africa and Asia.
Our website is designed to be a resource for different stakeholders by providing news and information about pangolins, their conservation and on-going research projects, and the activities of the PangolinSG. It also hosts a library of scientific literature and resources and provides details on how you can get involved with the group. Thank you for visiting, and please get in touch anytime!
