After learning that the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Landscaping and Greening had made an administrative license decision to allow a Beijing Cultural Development Co., Ltd. to sell Giant Ground Pangolin scales, China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF) applied to it for government information disclosure of the scales. However, the Bureau basically did not disclose the information on the grounds that the information did not exist or involved commercial secrets. Therefore, on January 7, CBCGDF formally submitted an application for administrative reconsideration to the National Forestry and Grassland Administration, requesting the revocation of the Bureau’s refusal to disclose the relevant information of the large pangolin on the grounds of commercial secrets, and re-information public.


Eight existing pangolins in the world have been listed in Appendix I of CITES. The damage to pangolins is the damage to the environment and ecology. Nevertheless, the protection of pangolins in China is still very grim.
