Pangolins: The World’s Most Wanted Animal...

The World’s Most Wanted Animal is a truly extraordinary film about a little known but utterly adorable animal called the pangolin.

The world’s only truly scaly mammal, this shy and secretive creature is also unfortunately the most trafficked animal in the world.

Its scales are used in traditional Asian medicine and its meat is eaten.

This film follows conservationist Maria Diekmann, who’s made saving the pangolin from extinction her life’s mission.

Based in Namibia, Africa, Maria travels to Vietnam, Thailand and China to meet others who are passionate about saving this amazing creature and raise awareness of the pangolin’s plight.

Narrated by David Attenborough.
