Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking

by Rachel Love Nuwer
£16.99   paperback  Scribe Publications (2018)

Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking by Rachel Love Nuwer An intrepid investigation of the criminal world of wildlife trafficking — the poachers, the traders, and the customers — and of those fighting against it.
 
Journalist Rachel Love Nuwer plunges the reader into the underground of global wildlife trafficking, a topic she has been investigating for nearly a decade. Our insatiable demand for animals — for jewellery, pets, medicine, meat, trophies, and fur — is driving a worldwide poaching epidemic, threatening the continued existence of countless species. Illegal wildlife trade now ranks among the largest contraband industries in the world, yet compared to drug, arms, or human trafficking, the wildlife crisis has received scant attention and support, leaving it up to passionate individuals fighting on the ground to try to ensure that elephants, tigers, rhinos, and more are still around for future generations.
 
Poached takes readers to the front lines of the 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 ten 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 are working to stop the impending extinctions — people who believe this is a battle that can be won, that our animals are not beyond salvation.
