Save the Pangolins!

7:00 p.m.
Nature: The World's Most Wanted Animal

Pangolins are truly unique. There are no other species quite like them in the animal kingdom. Nature shows the crusade to save the irresistible pangolin, the world's most trafficked animal. Fortunately, pangolins are starting to receive the attention and conservation action that they deserve and there is cause for optimism.


$5 monthly donation or $60 one-time donation choose:

  • 12" Pangolin plush from Wild Republic's Cuddlekin collection. The Pangolin may be on the endangered species list, but this Pangolin stuffed animal is only in danger of being too huggable.
  • DVD - Nature: The World's Most Wanted Animal Pangolins are often described as "the most endangered animal you've never heard of." The world's only scaly mammal, pangolins are now trafficked at a higher rate than rhinos, elephants and tigers combined, for medicinal use in China, Thailand and Vietnam. Very little is known about even their most basic biology, and this is hampering conservation efforts - pangolins almost always die in captivity. In Namibia, conservationist Maria Diekmann found herself on the frontline of the battle to save these wanted animals after unexpectedly becoming a surrogate mother to an orphaned baby pangolin named Honey Bun. On an emotional journey, Diekmann travels to Asia to better understand the global issues facing pangolins, before joining forces with a Chinese megastar to help build a campaign to bring awareness to the plight of these surprisingly charming creatures.
