Save Pangolins From Extinction ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Pangolins face a real possibility of extinction if something isn't done to stop the illegal trafficking for a medicinal cure that is based on superstition. We ask for harsher penalties for poaching and more public education

What's the deal with Asian people wanting to eat everything that moves (and then claim all the parts help their own human physiology) - Honestly... the world would be a much better place if humans all became vegetarian or vegan. I see so much of this... not just on Care2, but for real in the market places out here...I passed a lady at a Thai market the other day... she had a basket full of baby turtles... 2 turtles were squashe in each bamboo woven prison... alive they were intended for purchasers to take them home to put them straight into the soup pot... it is heartbraking!

The terribly sad thing is this....even if trapped pangolins are seized from smugglers, they don't fare well in captive situations. NOBODY knows why...but we know it's so. Once a poacher takes a pangolin, it's essentailly dead...even if the government takes it away.

I'm right there with you Col - i have no idea why China can't progress past the stage of eating rare animals and ignorantly believing they have magical properties. Eastern Medicine as a whole is getting a bad rap because of this! Acupuncture, whole body medicine, prevention - eastern medicine was WAY ahead of western in realizing these things were necessary - why can't Chinese "medicine" wake up to the fact that there are NO MEDICINAL BENEFITS to doing this kind of thing?! Sigh, if I'm ever rich I will put money into solid research and an information campaign to eradicate this ridiculous practice!

done. I am so sick of poachers ( all should be shot dead) impotent governmental intervention and the stupidity and ignorance of these backward people who not only eat every thing in sight, but also believe these creatures contain magical cures. Move into the 21st century morons!

Might know China would be involved in some way The only animal they seem to care about is the Panda and probably because its a tourist attraction otherwise it would be eaten or used for medicine like the rest

Thanks Cher, somehow i think its already too late, I imagine that as the Rhino becomes more guarded and difficult to hunt that they will wipe out the Pangolins, and then move on to something else, the people who do this are all parasites, they feed off everything on t he earth - leaving a desert behind them. everything will go the same way, the trees, everything.
