The 18th of February was World Pangolin Day!

Posted: 19th February, 2017
Here at Shaldon we are pleased to be supporting the One More Generation campaign!

Just download one of the images below of a blank pangolin, colour them in, then send them to the zoo! Here at SWT we also support a program called the Carnivore and Pangolin Conservation Program, and by submitting your colouring you will be entered into a prize draw to win an adoption of one of our beautiful Owston's Civets, another ambassador for Vietnamese conservation.
You can send your entries by post to:

Shaldon Zoo, Ness Drive, Shaldon, TQ14 0HP
or attach it in an email to:

Your work will also be sent to the OMG campaign, where it will be placed on a banner and displayed at Hartsfield International Airport, along with other banners from around the globe. Happy Colouring!
