A few days ago, a staff member of Guangdong Chao’an Phoenix Mountain Provincial Nature Reserve was pleasantly surprised to find that multiple infrared cameras had captured images of Chinese pangolins at night. The video shows that pangolins are digging holes in the forest.

At the beginning of this year, Guangdong Chao’an Phoenix Mountain Provincial Nature Reserve Management Office launched a wildlife infrared camera monitoring project. Starting in May, they implemented field control of infrared cameras, and at the end of August they received the first batch of data.
In June 2020, pangolins had changed from the national second-level protected wild animals to the first-level protected wild animals.
In recent years, Guangdong Chao'an Phoenix Mountain Provincial Nature Reserve has comprehensively protected the rare wild animals and plants in the reserve through scientific research, field monitoring, and other methods. Now, the ecological environment in the reserve has been significantly improved, and the population of wild animals and plants is constantly expanding.
