In 1972, Eric Dinerstein was in film school at Northwestern University, with few thoughts of nature, let alone tiger filled jungles at the base of the Himalayas or the antelope studded Serengeti plain Yet thanks to some inspiring teachers and the squawk of a little green heron that awakened him to nature s fundamental wonders, Dinerstein would ultimately become a leadingIn 1972, Eric Dinerstein was in film school at Northwestern University, with few thoughts of nature, let alone tiger filled jungles at the base of the Himalayas or the antelope studded Serengeti plain Yet thanks to some inspiring teachers and the squawk of a little green heron that awakened him to nature s fundamental wonders, Dinerstein would ultimately become a leading conservation biologist, traveling to these and other remote corners of the world to protect creatures ranging from the striking snow leopard to the homely wrinkle faced bat.Tigerland and Other Unintended Destinations takes readers on Dinerstein s unlikely journey to conservation s frontiers, from early research in Nepal to recent expeditions as head of Conservation Science at the World Wildlife Fund We are there as the author renews his resolve after being swept downstream on an elephant s back, tracks snow leopards in the mountains of Kashmir with a remarkable housewife turned zoologist, and finds unexpected grit in a Manhattanite donor he guides into the wildest reaches of the Orinoco River At every turn, we meet professed and unprofessed ecologists who shareDinerstein s mission, a cast of free spirited characters uncommonly committed to and remarkably successful at preserving slices of the world s natural heritage.A simple sense of responsibility, one feels, shines through all of Dinerstein s experiences not just to marvel at what we see, but to join in efforts sustain the planet s exquisite design Tigerland s message is clear individuals make all the difference if we combine science, advocacy, and passion, ambitious visions for conservation can become reality even against overwhelming odds.

Instructive without being preachy--those who enjoy the study of distant lands or the viewing of Animal Planet should enjoy this book too. Each chapter deals with a different ecosystem and species there that has a conservation issue, and along the way you learn a lot of fascinating details about field biology study practices, an incredibly wide array of birds, insects, animals, and plants, and how these environmentally aware scientists [...]
