Jackie Chan joins the fight for endangered pangolins

In a video, martial arts action star Jackie Chan urges people to never buy pangolin meat or scale.

"When the buying stops, the killing can too," he says.

Conservationists hope that Chan will help reduce consumption of pangolins by reaching a wider audience across Asia, especially China and Vietnam.

Martial arts superstar Jackie Chan has joined the fight to stop the poaching of the world’s most trafficked mammal — the pangolin or scaly anteater.

In a video entitled “Kung Fu Pangolin” released by conservation organizations WildAid and The Nature Conservancy, Jackie Chan tries to teach pangolins kung fu to protect themselves from poachers and urges people to never buy pangolin meat or scale. “When the buying stops, the killing can too,” he says.
