Find out more about our new Pangolin Exhibit. One of the most unique species of biodiversity, pangolins are unfortunately poached for their meat and used as traditional medicines in Asia. As a result, they now face the perilous situation of extinction.
In response to this threat, Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) has been instrumental in bringing together leading conservationists and leaders of enforcement authorities across the region to enhance efforts and roll-out action plans to secure the future of pangolins in the wild. WRS continues to work with local enforcement agencies to rescue, rehabilitate and release pangolins into the forested areas of Singapore.
Pangolins are nocturnal mammals with scales covering their skin. They are very good climbers and are sometimes found sleeping high up in trees. They are found in tropical regions of Africa and Asia. Here is something interesting! Bet you didn’t know that Pangolin is derived from “pengguling“ (something that rolls up) in Malay. They spend most of their time sleeping during the day, curled up into a ball.
Learn interesting facts about the behaviour and living habits of pangolins and experience how their scales feel like. Don’t miss the action!
