The first international book that highlights the need to safeguard the world's most threatened species. John Sellar describes why organized crime has turned to robbing nations of their wildlife bringing several species to the brink of extinction and how criminal networks recruit, equip and direct poachers and wildlife contraband couriers, and how smuggling, bribery and violence are used in the markets where illegal-origin wildlife is traded. Sellar reflects frankly, and sometimes critically, on his service as a UN official and recounts several of his incredible experiences; visiting anti-poaching officers on the roof of the world, the Tibetan Plateau, and bizarre late-night hospitality from KGB officers.
