example of morally growing though time as he gains experience. He has a humble way of describing his experiences that make you want to strap your boots on and head into the bush. I think the main issue identified within the book so far is human ignorance. Very few people realize how fast we are losing species, and losing habitat. It is something that we as Americans are not educated very well on. I’m a Biology major

in my Junior year and I admit to never having heard of a Dry Tropical Forest. I never knew that the rarity and beauty were hanging on a thread, almost gone, forever. I think another big issue raised in the book is poor policy. In the chapter “Kingdom of the Snow Leopards” Dinerstein talks about how difficult it was to obtain the permits and papers necessary to cross an international border in order to track down leopards. Governments are slow to change and have an “If that policy worked in 1862 than I don’t see why it wouldn’t work now” attitude. I think that all the help and cooperation given from governments around the world is great but I strongly believe that they could do much better. Another issue identified in the book is human culture. People still want their fortunes read with tiger bones, they still want to eat lion testicles and ground up teeth for increased libido. Its their culture, like doing weird things such as only eating fish on Fridays. The bush meat trade is a good example of people buying all sorts of animal parts because their culture believes it will do something beneficial to the person or their family.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
