Animal Investigators: How the World’s First Wildlife Forensics Lab Is Solving Crimes and Saving Endangered Species

By Laurel A. Neme *95
Published in the July15, 2009, issue


(Scribner)

The author reveals how scientists and agents at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory in Ashland, Ore., investigate wildlife crimes, protect endangered species, and try to stem illegal wildlife trafficking. She focuses on three case studies: walrus-tusk hunting in Alaska; the killing of black bears for the healing powers of their gallbladders; and the stalking of rare birds in the Amazon for their feathers. Neme is an international consultant specializing in natural-resources management.
