The African pangolin is the most trafficked wildlife species on earth, yet most people don’t even know it exists. We believe that if people come to know this secretive animal will they care enough to help stop the illegal wildlife trade threatening its survival.
We’ve partnered with conservation NPO Pangolin.Africa to increase awareness around the plight of the pangolin, and raise funds to help them distribute their ground-breaking new film Eye of the Pangolin to rural kids living in high poaching areas. Please visit our project on the GivenGain donor platform and help us reach our fundraising goal of R10,000!
