SUNNY THE PANGOLIN
SAVE THE MOST ILLEGALLY TRAFFICKED MAMMAL IN THE WORLD!
Sunny was the victim of illegal wildlife trade in Nghi Loc district, Nghe An province. After being rescued by the police, she was transferred to SVW’s rescue center on November 9, 2021.
Before was returned to the center, Sunny had a broken and necrotic hind leg due to being caught in a trap, so the veterinarians had to operate to completely amputate the necrotic leg, in order to save her life. During the operation, the veterinarian discovered that she was pregnant in the first stage, then she was transferred to the special care area to recover from surgery and assist in her pregnancy.
Fortunately and happily, on March 8, 2022, the mother pangolin gave birth to a very lovely baby pangolin, weighing only 90 grams and we named her Ant, with the wish that even though she looks small and fragile, she will always be more resilient and stronger than anyone.
Due to the mother pangolin having lost a hind leg, she is not able to adapt to the habitat. Therefore, she will stay and become the education ambassador of the Center, while Ant will be trained by her mother to survive and we will release her back to the wild when the conditions are met.
