Weder ihr Schuppenpanzer noch Einschränkungen des Handels haben Schuppentiere bislang ausreichend vor Wilderei geschützt. Am 28. September 2016 sprachen sich die Delegierten der Artenschutzkonferenz (CITES) dafür aus, den kommerziellen, internationalen Handel mit allen acht Schuppentier-Arten zu verbieten. Die Tiere sollen in die höchste Schutzkategorie, Anhang I des Washingtoner Artenschutzübereinkommens, aufgenommen werden.

The Parties of CITES had weighed four proposals to protect four Asian and four African species of pangolins, and chose to give them the strongest possible global protections from trade. Pangolins are the most illegally traded mammal in the world. The decisions were reached at the 17th Conference of the Parties (CoP 17) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Johannesburg, South Africa, and as a result, the international commercial trade of all eight species of pangolin and pangolin parts is officially prohibited.
