Animal Quest Episode 11: Chinchilla Edition

Meet Moomin and Snork, Alveus' Chinchillas, and learn about the history of chinchillas in the US. We'll explore issues with the pet trade, how the fur trade has made them an endangered species, and what we can do to help.

Each episode of Animal Quest introduces you to an ambassador at Alveus and teaches you about them as well as their species as a whole. We'll look at their importance to the world around us, the risks and misconceptions their species faces, and what we can do to help them.
