Pangolins are on a roll in this blog…. endangered and trafficked world-wide for food, magic and medicine, they NEED our help!
The work of Lisa Hywood of the Tikki Hywood Trust in Zimbabwe, is never ending….. conservation, education and legislation challenges abound….
and is the inspiration for a concerted effort to conserve Zimbabwe’s Ground Pangolin (Manis temminckii), before it is too late..
Visit my Lin Barrie Art pages to see my pangolin paintings, part proceeds to benefit Tikki Hywood Trust…

Patrick Mavros Junior has created stunning Pangolin pieces, high fashion art mixed with Conservation….
Part proceeds from all sales of Mavros pangolin jewellery contribute toward the Tikki Hywood Trust in Zimbabwe…!!!
I have always enjoyed painting pangolins, and am lucky to have seen them up close and personal, in a sheltered environment and also in a truly wild environment…I saw this gorgeous girl last year in a truly wild place….
Pangolins provide endless graphic inspiration for me, and I have decided that the part proceeds from my pangolin paintings sold will also contribute towards Tikki Hywood Trust.
Two of my current art works are hanging for viewing and sale in the Mavros showroom in Harare, go and take a look ….

Sarah Savory has written two very entertaining and yet wonderfully educational books, (never easy to combine those two aspects, but she has cracked it!)
and “That’s How We Roll”…
Sarah read her books to the entranced children, and “Pangolin Protector” certificates were the hit of the day….
She kindly visited the local Mahenye Junior school for a reading…donating books to their little library…
Pangolin Day is coming soon…..
and another pangolin weekend is happening, date yet to be advised, but will be hosted by Sarah, at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge this year…
