Prediger to share on Pangolins

25 October 2020 | Events

Pangolins are considered the most trafficked mammal in the world, but very little research on this mammal and its behaviours have been done.

Despite this, many conservationists are passionate about these mammals. One such conservationist is Kelsey Prediger, a research associate and student of the Biodiversity Research Centre at the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST).

Prediger will deliver a talk entitled "Trying to understand a species worth saving: Temminck’s ground pangolin in Namibia" at the Swakopmund Museum lecture hall on 29 October 2020 from 18:00

Pangolin scales are part of rituals and superstitions pertaining to financial wellbeing, protection from witchcraft and spiritual protection, among others, in many African cultures.

In the People’s Republic of China, it is used for medicinal purposes mainly pertaining to the blood and blood circulation of an individual.
