PROTECT BIODIVERSITY! WORLD’S MOST TRAFFICKED ANIMAL – Distance Learning
Africa is often seen as a hotbed of illegal activity surrounding the black-market trade of threatened species, particularly due to its beautiful array of exotic animals. One of these special creatures, one that is not commonly known, is the unique pangolin, a scaled mammal reminiscent of an armadillo. Trafficking of these creatures has drastically increased in recent years. After watching a National Geographic YouTube video (9:58 in length), your students will determine the factors that have led to the violent uptake in this blood trade, and what is being done to save the pangolin.
1. Pair students to watch and answer questions together.
