"Pangolins are the world's most trafficked mammal"


Pangolins are said to be the world's most trafficked mammal. All eight species are targeted for their meat and for use in traditional Chinese medicine. At the Cites meeting in South Africa in September 2016, they received extra safeguards against trafficking.

Wildlife photographer Paul Hilton wanted to capture their plight. He has won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition's photojournalism category for his image "The Pangolin Pit".
