PANGOLIN IN FOCUS

We take a look at this fascinating scaly mammal

There are eight species of pangolin in total and they are commonly known as ‘scaly anteaters’. Four are native to Africa, the Black-Bellied Pangolin (Phataginus tetradactyla), White-Bellied Pangolin (Phataginus tricuspis), Giant Ground Pangolin (Smutsia gigantean) and Temmnick’s Ground Pangolin (Smutsia temminckii). The other species of pangolin are the Indian Pangolin (Manis crassicaudata), Philippine Pangolin (Manis culionensis), Sunda Pangolin (Manis javanica) and the Chinese Pangolin (Manis pentadactyla). Pangolin’s main predators are humans, with their scales being too tough for lions or tigers to crack. Their defence against predators such as lions is to roll up into a ball, but unfortunately this makes it easy for poachers to hunt them.

About Vegan Life

On New Year’s Day we posted a graphic on our social media pages that read ‘Welcome to 2018, the Year of the Vegan’ and, without being too smug, so far we think that our prediction has been spot on the money. It seems that every single day we are hearing news of vegan products that are being created to cater for the ever increasing number of people shunning cruelty towards nonhuman animals. The number of people who are waking up to the benefits of following a vegan lifestyle seems to be snowballing in 2018, more quickly than in any other year thus far, and I truly believe that this year will be the Year of the Vegan. Just flicking through this month's news section is proof that mainstream media, restaurants and shops are jumping on the vegan bandwagon. There are people who say that these companies are just trying to make a quick buck by tapping into this newly emerging market, and I think that there is some truth to that. However, if it means that more companies are avoiding animal products and therefore there is less animal exploitation in the world, and more plant based innovation, then I can only see this as a good thing. Anyway, what’s in this month’s Vegan Life? We were lucky enough to interview the mesmerising Monami Frost. Monami may not appear to be your cup of tea at first, but I urge you to read her interview. She has a unique outlook on life, especially on focusing on the now, which I think we can all learn from. Alongside this we have; a fascinating article from Fat Gay Vegan on creating your own vegan blog to spread the compassionate message far and wide; a feature exploring the war on single use wet wipes and the negative impact that they are having on the environment; and a travel piece on eating vegan in Copenhagen. I hope that you enjoy the issue and I’d love to hear your feedback, so please do get in touch!
