3. Singapore Zoo – Scale Up Your Love for Pangolins

Discover all about pangolins at the Singapore Zoo this March. Pang-what? Yes, pangolins – the most illegally trafficked mammal that you might have never heard of. According to pangolins.org, pangolins are scaly anteaters but they are unique as they are “covered in hard, plate-like scales”. Due to poaching, these special mammals are now critically endangered. Join the Singapore Zoo in their call to protect and raise awareness of pangolins in a series of activities such as a heart-warming story walk, meet an adorable pangolin and more!
