For rescuers, there's no question that this lifesaving work is worth the heartache and the challenges. They will need to buy an almost constant supply of expensive ant eggs — the main component of a pangolin's diet — to keep these survivors strong.
Many followers of the rescue center's work expressed gratitude that SVW was there to save the survivors. "So tragic," one person wrote. "Thank you for saving the ones you could. You’re all heroes to these poor exploited individuals."
"Keep fighting the fight," another wrote. "Every one pangolin that you save matters."
