The extent of pangolin trafficking throughout Asia and increasingly Africa is horrifying. However, we aren’t going to dwell any longer on the saddening state of pangolins. Instead, we’re going to be looking at some of the awesome ways different organisations (and people) are attempting to save this incredible species!
When I was a child dreaming of helping animals (as Steve Irwin, of course) all sorts of creatures were at the forefront of my mind. But there was one kind of animal that very rarely featured in little Angus’ mind: frogs. Now, after my time in Madagascar, I have a whole new appreciation for these incredible little fellas, who need all the help we can get. SO! In this post we have a doozy of an amphibian! Prepare yourself to meet the one, the only, the incredible lemur leaf frog!
As a child, I wanted to be many things. A sportsman, a zookeeper, a wizard, a jedi. Apart from my father however, I only ever wanted to be one person; I wanted to be Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter. From as early as I can remember, and probably earlier still if you ask my parents, I could spend hours at a time sitting down watching Steve leaping out of boats onto crocodiles, and rushing after and picking up venomous snakes. Perhaps most importantly though, I was absorbing his passion for any, and all animals.
