Pangolins, Scales of Injustice

£9.99 inc. p & p


By 2019 pangolins had gained the unenviable tag of being the “most trafficked mammals” on earth.  Demand in China and the Far East for pangolin scales and meat had soared and so had prices.  Ever increasing demand meant ever increasing supply and the world’s eight pangolin species paid the price. In February 2020 the novel corona virus (Covid-19) was fast spreading across the world, and pangolins were thrust into the global spotlight when scientists discovered that the virus may have come to humans via bats and pangolins.  This is the world’s first general interest book on pangolins, and the world’s first book linking Covid-19 to pangolins.
