In this week’s episode of My Travels and Other Animals, actor Martin Clunes looks back at his encounters with creatures in danger

Martin Clunes presents another selection of highlights from his global wildlife travels, this week focussing on animals in danger.

He begins in Tasmania, where scientists are working to protect the endangered Tasmanian devil.

A type of facial cancer has reduced the population by 80 per cent, but a new vaccine could be the lifeline these creatures need.

Martin meets a Tasmanian devil

Next up are the wild horses of Mongolia, before Martin takes to the warm and clear waters off the coast of the Maldives, to witness some serene – and highly endangered – manta rays as they feast on plankton.

The final animal in danger is much closer to home – the pedigree dog, especially the British bulldog, which is now in a terrible state, thanks to us humans.
