Pangolins, the World's Most Trafficked Mammal

He's a little video we with with CNN's "Great Big Story". Can you do us a favor and share this with a friend my tagging them below? Current donations will specifically go towards a NEW CONSERVATION initiative to get local hunters out of protected forests in Western Togo by providing them a sustainable economic alternative to hunting. They'll participate in a new program raising "Grasscutters", a type of large rodent that hunters traditionally sell in "bushmeat" markets. Instead of setting snares, that also catch pangolins, they'll be able to raise grasscutters in an environmentally friendly manner.Our goal is to raise $10,000. Can you donate $1, $5, or $20 to help us reach that goal? The costs will go specifically towards the following:1.) Providing microloans to hunters to give them the capital to setup grasscutter farms.2.) To provide training to the new grasscutter farms. 3.) To fund the research of a Togolese biologist to best adapt grasscutter farming specific to Togolese villages, measure the successes, failures, and providing rapid changes to the program to maximize engagement within the hunting communities. 4.) Within one year provide recommendations on expanding the program to other communities and neighboring countries.Let's work together to get harmful snares out of the forest through a way that uplifts communities.
