Don't miss this tonight (Tuesday 15 May 2018) on BBC2 at 8pm - the programme is called Pangolins - The World's Most Wanted Animal.

Sir David Attenborough wastes no time, says the Sunday Times review.  He introduces us to the pangolin, and then explains it's the world's most trafficked wild animal.

100,000 are killed every year for their meat and scales, and the pangolin is rapidly heading for extinction. 

 

German pangolin conservationist Maria Diekmann is based in Namibia, and she travels to Vietnam, Thailand and China in an effort to help their plight.  Maria founded the Rare and Endangered Species Trust  (for short, REST Namibia)
