Pangolin Conservation Working Group Nigeria (PCWGN), 2018 ACTIVITIES


7TH WORLD PANGOLIN DAY - 2018

The theme we selected this year was “Meet the Pangolin”, because we realized when more people know the pangolin and the threat they face and their importance, they may help to stop and discourage those who exploit them for trade.

The event did not hold like in previous years in Ibadan, Oyo state. We proceeded to Abeokuta Ogun state, and made use of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Resource Centre.  

 

We also made shirts for this World Pangolin Day
