Eye of the Pangolin: The Search for an Animal on the Edge

Eye of the Pan­golin is the sto­ry of two men on a mis­sion to share the won­der of all four species of African pan­golin on cam­era for the first time ever.

Fol­low their extra­or­di­nary jour­ney to remote loca­tions on the African con­ti­nent, from arid savan­nah to exot­ic jun­gles. Become cap­ti­vat­ed by these extra­or­di­nary crea­tures as the film­mak­ers meet the peo­ple who are car­ing for and study­ing pan­golins in a des­per­ate attempt to save them from being poached and trad­ed into extinc­tion.

Filmed in Ultra High Def­i­n­i­tion, this ambi­tious doc­u­men­tary is freely avail­able online for com­mer­cial-free view­ing.

Eye of the Pan­golin will be added to our list of Free Doc­u­men­taries, a sub­set of our col­lec­tion 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More.
