    Nothing gold can stay
    a poem by Robert Frost


    Nature’s first green is gold,

    Her hardest hue to hold.

    Her early leaf’s a flower;

    But only so an hour.

    Then leaf subsides to leaf.

    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.

    Nothing gold can stay.

    Created with oil paint on gold leaf, this gentle creature peers out from its golden armor to assess us as friend or foe. The pangolin is the world’s most trafficked mammal, prized for its scales and meat, its variety of eight species range from vulnerable to critically endangered.
