Endangered Pangolins Removed from Traditional Medicine List in China

Endangered Pangolins Removed from Traditional Medicine List in China

Pangolin scales have been removed from an official 2020 listing of ingredients approved for use in traditional Chinese medicine as reported by China’s Health Times newspaper.  There was no official announcement but pangolins were not listed in the newly published 2020 edition of the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) pharmacopeia. This delisting comes after the country’s State Forestry and Grassland Administration (SFGA) last week raised the protected status of pangolins to the highest level.
