Science Author Rachel Nuwer on “Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking” POSTPONED
February 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
This event has been postponed due to weather. A new date will be announced soon.
Join GCU for the free, public discussion with journalist Rachel Nuwer. In her latest book, Ms. Nuwer plunges the reader into the underground of illegal wildlife trade as she reports from killing fields in Africa, traditional medicine black markets in China, and wild meat restaurants in Vietnam.
Through exhaustive first-hand reporting that took her to a dozen countries, Nuwer explores the forces currently driving demand for animals and their parts; the toll that demand is extracting on species across the planet; and the conservationists, rangers, and activists who believe it is not too late to stop the impending extinctions. More than a depressing list of statistics, Poached is the story of the people who believe this is a battle that can be won, that our animals are not beyond salvation.
