Add pangolins to the WWF species directory

All eight species of pangolins are listed on the IUCN red list and could face extinction due to illegal wildlife trafficking. WWF focus many popular animals, such as Elephants, Tigers and Pandas. However, pangolins are genetically and ecologically unique species under incredible threat, yet are not well featured on the website. By featuring pangolin on their species page, the WWF could raise public awareness of these little known mammals and thus enhance their conservation. The propostition is to add the critically endangered Chinese pangolin (Manis pentadactyla) and the Sunda pangolin (Manis javanica) to the WWF species directory. 

If these pangolins go extinct, 87 million years of careful natural selection and divergence will be lost.
