India to be the next hotspot for pangolin poaching: Biologist

Kolkata, Jun 19(UNI) India could be the next hot spot for Pangolin poachers after African nations, according to Prof Samuel K Wasser, Director Centre for Conservation Biology, University of Washington.
Speaking at a Media Roundtable here at the American Centre on Tuesday, Prof Wasser said pangolin trade may have just surpassed international illegal ivory trade and is estimated at USD 4 billion annually.
India, which is home to at least two species of pangolin-- Manis crassicaudata and Chinese Pangolin M. pentadactyla--is going to be the next target of international wildlife criminal organisations as Africa could be soon depleted of pangolins, he opined.
