AWF x Years of Living Dangerously

AWF and Years of Living Dangerously are focusing on the catastrophic effects of climate change in the newest episode of the Emmy-Award winning program. Shifting climate patterns will have a catastrophic effect on Africa’s wildlife and people, and the expected rise of 2 degrees Celsius could drive as much as 40% of Africa’s mammals into critically endangered or extinct status by 2080. Tune in to the episode on Nov. 30 on National Geographic Channel to watch AWF director Fiesta Warinwa shed light on these threats with actor and correspondent Aasif Mandvi — and find out what we can do to change the trend.

When frightened or disturbed the dik-dik emits a whistling sound from its nose that sounds like “zik-zik,” which is probably how it came to get its unusual name.
