To make the pangolins at China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation (CBCGDF)’s Guangzhou Pangolin Rescue and Wild Rehabilitation Center (hereinafter referred to as Rescue Center) to obtain sufficient food, and also to adapt to the living environment in the wild efficiently, which will also help them to be released more smoothly in the future, the “pangolin girl” from CBCGDF searched for ant nests for them near the Rescue Center.


It's really not an easy thing to do. Large ant nests are almost hidden in the deep woods or at the top of the trees, and staff have to look in the woods in the hot sun and at high temperatures, not only to endure the sultry and humid surroundings, but also to beware of mosquito bites at all times. But even if already very careful, the “pangolin girl" was stung a lot of big bags. The second is the removal and handling of the ant nest, picking the ant nest should not only be careful to not to be cut by leaves, bamboo, but also to tell whether it is built with the hornet's nest; the picked ant nests should be carefully placed in the box and transported back to the Rescue Center, minimizing the loss of ant numbers.


Although this process is very difficult, CBCGDF staff all expressed: In order to let the pangolins recover more well and smoothly domesticate in the wild to return to nature early, it is all worthwhile.
