Save the porcupine
If we continue killing our little porcupines, we will have them on the red data list soon…
PLEASE do not buy any products made out of porcupine quills. You will find beautiful jewelry, ornaments, lampshades and even place mats in the South African shops.
There is a perception that porcupine quills falls out like hair and that this is how they are gathered to create products. It is simply not true, porcupines are caught and killed in order to get the quills – as many as 3 porcupines have to be killed to make a lampshade or a placemat.
If we, South Africans, go on like this we will have our little porcupine on the red data list one of these days.
