Pangolin road kill in Lornie Highway next to Bukit Brown

The bitter irony of it all is i have explored Bukit Brown for just over 10 years and have not seen a single pangolin in the wild in that area and yet i have seen photos and even videos of pangolin sightings in the wild at Bukit Brown throughout the years making me so envious.

Unfortunately today (11 July 2022) i managed to see a pangolin in the wild but the circumstances of it is totally opposite of what i wish for. Today i saw a dead pangolin, a victim of a road kill along Lornie Highway, 10 meters before bus stop 41169 - Before Kheam Hock Road. I shared the distressing images on social media and a friend gave me a contact to lodge the sitting too (which i did). 

I think this tragic incident should be shared as a reminder what Bukit Brown as a heritage park space represents. Because of its proximity to the Nature Reserves and diverse habitat, it has become home to such animals too. As a rich diverse space, it needs our protection as well from further destruction from development.
