THE WORLD WITHOUT WILDLIFE
A Journey to the Frontlines of the Illegal Wildlife Trade
Richard Preston’s The Hot Zone meets Rachel Carson’s The Silent Spring as science journalist Rachel Nuwer takes readers on a narrative journey to the frontlines of the trade—killing fields in Africa, jungles in Vietnam, medicinal shops in China, ivory black markets in New York City—where individuals ranging from scientists to wardens to Buddhist monks are fighting to stop the impending extinctions from the illegal poaching of endangered animals.
Rachel Nuwer is a freelance science journalist who contributes to outlets such as the New York Times, Smithsonian, Scientific American, New Scientist, Popular Science, Audubon, and more. She regularly blogs about wildlife for Smithsonian and publishes a column, Last Place on Earth, with BBC Future. She wrote her ecology master’s thesis at the University of East Anglia, England, on the illegal wildlife trade and natural resource use in Vietnam. Her wanderlust has taken her from southern Mississippi to 58 countries, six of which she has lived in.
