WIN! ‘Nature: The World’s Most Wanted Animal’
Found in Africa and Asia, pangolins are the most poached and trafficked animal in the world. Based in Namibia, conservationist Maria Diekmann is working to save them.
On an emotional journey, Maria travels to Asia to better understand the global issues facing pangolins, before joining forces with a Chinese megastar to bring awareness to the plight of a scaly mammal most people have never heard of.
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 front line 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.
