FOREWORDGovernment of NepalMinistry of Forests and EnvironmentDepartment of National Parks and Wildlife ConservationG.P.O. Box: 860, Kathmandu, Nepal. Tel. 4220919, 4220850, 4227926, Fax: 977-1-4227675The Government of Nepal is committed to conserve and safeguard threatened and endangered wildlife including pangolins. Pangolin is one of the most elusive and poorly studied small mammals across its range. Eight species of pangolins survive in the wild, among these, two species (Chinese Pangolin Manis pentadactyla and Indian Pangolin M. crassicaudata) are recorded in Nepal. Both species are listed in schedule I of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 1973 and included in Appendix I of Convention on Illegal Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).The Pangolins are under threats mostly due to poaching, illegal trade and loss and degradation of their habitats. The species is highly threatened due to high demand of its skins, scales, and meat in the local and international illegal wildlife trade market. So, realizing these facts the CITES Conference of Parties (CoP) 17 held in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2016 included all pangolin species in appendix I from appendix II.
