Had an incredible week spending time with a woman who has dedicated most of her life to caring for meerkats. Did you know that these animals face serious threats too? The biggest one being that they are captured and sold illegally as pets. She has successfully rescued and rehabilitated over 50 of these animals. I look forward to revealing more soon.
