About the Author
The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places through international field research, education, and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. WCS publishes an award-winning magazine, Wildlife Conservation, and partners with media outlets to cover pressing conservation issues. Many WCS scientists have published widely in popular and scientific publications.
