Animal Investigators (giveaway)

animal-investigators-200We got a chance to review an amazing book recently! Animal Investigators: How the World’s First Wildlife Forensics Lab Is Solving Crimes and Saving Endangered Species is an interesting read about the world’s first wildlife forensics lab. Scientists and forensics teams work together to solve murders of endangered species, and of course to help stop the poaching and smuggling of these animals. With the new forensics techniques, they are fighting a billion dollar trade with even more power! It’s a hard read at times, but also a hopeful read, that with such technology the wildlife trafficking trade may actually come to an end someday.

The book looks at three criminal cases involving wildlife. It has suspense and mystery, with undercover investigations, and innovative forensic techniques! It’s a book that can appeal to both animal lovers and suspense lovers because it combines both. You can learn more about the book and Laurel Neme’s work by visiting her website.

    I love forensics and I love animals. It would be great to read a book on using our scientific knowledge to help save the endagered species of the world.

    This is like Dead Men Do Tell Tales – by William R. Maples, whose specialy is in forensic anthropology (bones). A very quirky look at crime solving.

    Laurel Neme has brought to light a long-neglected societal problem. Let’s hope this book helps to raise awareness and bring about a much stronger enforcement of laws and an end to the black market for animal “products.” I’d be quite pleased to add this book to my own personal library.

    I have a friend who would absolutely love this book. If I win it she’ll get it for her birthday. 🙂

    Thanks!

    Humans arent the only species on the planet – they just act like it.

    Animals are going extinct so your SUV driving, dead cow eating, selfish fat butt can enjoy your gluttony!

    I am reading books similar to this one. Both dealing with the topic indirectly. Sounds interesting!
