• Persecution.

• Habitat loss and degradation due to conversion of land for agriculture, livestock grazing, clearing of woodlands.

• Habitat fragmentation due to loss of connectivity of suitable habitat between protected areas.

Habitat:

•Subtropical and deciduous forests, agricultural lands and near human settlements. Pangolins are able to adapt to modified habitats such as secondary forests, provided their termite food source remains abundant.

    Hi Bal krishna Pandey, this is a mentor, Sang Su Lee.

    It is so sad to read the news about wild animals suffered by humans. Humans kill every life if it gives them benefits, which is really undesirable behaviors considering the fact that wild animals and humans are living together in the ecosystem. Illegal poaching and persecution should be stopped to protect them...

    Hello Bal krishna Pandey, this is mentor Taehyun!

    Thank you for your article on the destruction of pangolin's habitat! For a variety of reasons, the habitats of the rare creature, pangolin, are in danger of being destroyed. I'm so sorry. It seems inevitable that if people build roads while developing them, the habitat division will occur, and if they build their habitats, the habitat will decrease. But shouldn't we be responsible for other lives for this?

    Thank you for the report!

    GREEN CHEERS!
