Giving Compass’ Take:
• We are highlighting award-winning freelance journalist Rachel Nuwer’s new book ‘Poached’, that dives deep into the dark world of wildlife trafficking.
• What are the most effective ways donors can give help to those fighting against poachers and how can we give more attention to this cause?
Journalist Rachel Nuwer plunges the reader into the underground of illegal wildlife trade: to 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.
