Over the past three days since the placement of a feeding tube (gastric peg tube), we have been monitoring Menina carefully. We are now able to feed her smaller meals regularly, which she seems to be responding well to. She appears to be getting stronger each day and she is beginning to show interest in ants! Once she gets stronger, she will be able to manage to forage for food and rely less on tube feeding.
Her prognosis is still guarded but we are cautiously optimistic that she will keep improving and doing all that we can to try ensure this.
We’ve been overwhelmed with the interest and response toward the rescue efforts for this little pangolin! This elusive species needs all the assistance it can get as they are being poached out of existence.

A sincere thank you to those who have donated to her care. We really do appreciate each and every donation.
