On The Brink by Carolyn Shattuck

On the Brink was created to express the urgent call for the pangolin's survival. Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked mammal according to the IUCN [International Union for the Conservation of Nature] These animals are poached on the black market mainly for their scales, which are highly prized for bogus medicinal purposes in China and Vietnam.
