Species

Protected

Last year we, along with our Vietnamese partners, got the rare and imperiled Chinese Crocodile Lizard (Shinisaurus crocodilurus) listed as an endangered species.  Poaching is largely responsible for the profound decrease in numbers of this sole survivor of an ancient lineage. Given their demand as pets and for folk medicine, this IUCN red-listing will be crucial to protecting these waterfall clinging lizards from extinction.
