Join us as we celebrate the eight species of pangolin!

PLEASE NOTE: World Pangolin Day 2013 is February 16!

Did you know that World Pangolin Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in February? We did some poking around on the interweb to see if pangolins have a special day — and they do!

This year, the special day falls on February 18th.

World Pangolin Day will be a great opportunity for pangolin supporters from all over to connect and raise awareness for these wonderful animals.

We’ve just launched our social media campaign with a World Pangolin Day Facebook page at and the hashtag is #worldpangolinday for those of you on Twitter.

Many people have still never heard of a pangolin! World Pangolin Day will be a fun opportunity to reach as many people as possible and introduce them to pangolins — who can resist these adorable little creatures?

Stay tuned — we will be posting more World Pangolin Day updates in the very near future!

In the meantime, connect with us on Facebook® at World Pangolin Day and Project Pangolin!
