Pangolins have a special place in my heart. I myself am a Pangolin Vtuber and want to make the most out of making people aware of the harmful interactions that pangolins have endured from humans.
There are 8 pangolin species that are known today: White-Bellied, Black-Bellied, Giant, Ground, Chinese, Philippine, Sunda, and Indian. They are amazing creatures that are hard to find because of their shy nature. Each species has something that really makes them stand out. My favorite, although they all are my favorite, are Black-Bellied Pangolins. They are so small and have the most beautiful black to orange scales.
Pangolins are, unfortunately, close to becoming endangered. Poachers seek these shy hidden creatures and kill them. They then pluck their scales that they are born with, and create medicines out of them. These medicines are unneccesary and some are not even proven to be effective for what they are being used for. People also eat these rare creatures, make jewelry from their scales, and even use their skin for many objects. In today's world, there is no reason to go to this extreme and push an adorable endangered species to extinction, there are other means to acquire these items/wants and leave these poor creatures to their habitats and homes.
For my birthday, I would like for friends and supporters alike to join me in raising money to go towards this non-profit organization to aid in the prevention of killing anymore of these cute little things. I will be making a large donation towards the end of the campain.
Thank you for taking the time and considering joining me for this cause.
