Tibet Wild

Monday, February 11, 2013

Leading field biologist George Schaller talks about his 30 years spent exploring in the most remote stretches of Tibet: the wide, sweeping rangelands of the Chang Tang and the canyons and ravines of the southeastern forests. In Tibet Wild he tells how more roads, homes, and grazing livestock, and are increasingly causing clashes between the wildlife and people. He works with local communities, regional leaders, and national governments to protect the unique ecological richness and culture of the Tibetan Plateau.

I've come to hate zoos and don't like to visit them. I think they should be banned. I also think ALL museums should be free ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Sorry Dr. Johnson, i know you didn't ask me but you sparked the thought in my head and I felt I had to express my feelings on the subject.

Leonard Lopate should be congratulated for having one of the world's greatest conservationist on his radio program, but he should be ashamed of knowing so little about Schaller's newest book, and for asking questions which show a knowledgeable listener that he is out of his league and was not adequately prepared to discuss matters on a level which would have allowed for a more sophisticated and far-reaching discussion.
