National Geographic Adventure review of Ivory’s Ghosts

Posted in ivory news by JFW on December 11, 2008

In the December 2008/January 2009 issue of National Geographic Adventure, Anthony Brandt has a review of Ivory’s Ghosts. Here’s an excerpt:

“…the author is a specialist in the megafauna of Africa, and this book is an invaluable primer on African conservation policy. Walker has been all over the continent, sifting the wisdom of the most eminent elephant behaviorists, from Ian Whyte at Kruger to Iain Douglas-Hamilton, the guiding force behind Save the Elephants. While Walker doesn’t pretend to offer definitive answers to the threats these pachyderms face, understanding the importance of the issues he raises is critical to the survival of more than elephants. In this comprehensive work with a serious message, there is never a dull moment.”
