Quotes

"Their existence is also dependent on good quality forest. I believe that these photographs are very important monitoring indicators of our conservation impacts.”"
"In the 21st century we really should not be eating species to extinction, there is simply no excuse for allowing this illegal trade to continue. All eight pangolin species are now listed as threatened with extinction, largely because they are being traded to China and Vietnam."
"More people need to know about pangolins and how they are on the edge of extinction," Thomson told The New York Times . "These are the most illegally traded mammals in the world, and yet many people don't know they exist."
Though, the researchers wrote, the tragic 2012 case was "first and foremost an accident," they said these events should "serve as a warning to respect the boundaries between wildlife and humans , especially when they co-inhabit a given area."
