5 706 Rabinowitz, Alan CHASING THE DRAGON’S TAIL, THE STRUGGLE TO SAVE THAILAND’S WILD CATS

The author was hired by a Thai Government agency to study leopards, tigers, and other wildlife in the Huai Kha Kaeng valley—one of Southeast Asia’s largest and most praised forests. It was hoped the research would help protect the many species that live in this fragile reserve area, which was slowly being decimated by poachers, drug traffickers and even the native tribes. The author discovers the many contradictions in the “land of smiles”. Despite the Buddhist aversion to killing, Bangkok is the world’s largest center for illegal wildlife trade. Even more disheartening is the discovery that the very government employees who hired Rabinowitz to protect the forest routinely aid in its destruction. A book on Thai wildlife and about problems a foreigner encounters when working in Thailand.
