In this insert we find out more about this young woman, and what drives her to want to create change.
ANTS AND ANTLIONS
Ants are formidable predators, found on just about every continent. They might be small, but they come with all kinds of powerful weapons. Even so, they are no match for antlions who are their mortal enemies. Antlions make cunning, deadly traps where they lie in wait for their next victims, and once an ant falls in, there’s little chance it’s ever getting out.
Pangolin’s are the world’s most trafficked mammal. This week we take a look at a short film produced by Tami Marriot who made the film after winning a grant in the N.E.W. Pitch Competition. This film highlights the plight of pangolins as seen through the eyes of one of its rescuers.
