Pangolin awareness is gaining momentum…. Jewellery, Literature and Paintings..This is “How We Roll!”

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….

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!)

“What on Earth is That?!”

and “That’s How We Roll”…

That's How We Roll.jpg


Her children share her passion for animals, environment and books…here is Luke’s drawing of a pangolin, (note the ants!) done during the Pangolin Weekend held at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge last year



Sarah read her books to the entranced children, and “Pangolin Protector” certificates were the hit of the day….

happy children again.jpg

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…

About wineandwilddogs

Lin Barrie The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues. This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil. Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation. Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas. Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.
