Description Tibet Wild de George B. Schaller:

George Schaller has spent much of his life traversing wild and isolated places in his quest to understand and conserve threatened species - from mountain gorillas in the Virunga to snow leopards in the Himalaya. Throughout his career, Schaller has spent more time in Tibet than anywhere else, devoting over thirty years to the wildlife, culture, and landscapes that captured his heart. "Tibet Wild" is Schaller's account of three decades of exploration in the most remote stretches of Tibet. As human development in the region accelerated, Schaller watched the clash between wildlife and people become more common - and more destructive. What began as a purely scientific endeavour became a mission: to work with local communities, regional leaders, and national governments to protect the ecological richness and culture of the Tibetan Plateau. Whether tracking brown bears, penning fables about the tiny pika, or promoting a conservation preserve that spans four nations, Schaller has pursued his goal with persistence and good humour. "Tibet Wild" is an intimate journey through the wilderness of Tibet, guided by the careful gaze and unwavering passion of a life-long naturalist. Dr. George B. Schaller has become known as one of the founding fathers of wildlife conservation over the course of his 50-year career. Spending most of his time in the field, he has led seminal studies on, and helped protect, some of the planet's most endangered and iconic animals ranging from tigers in India to giant pandas in China. These animals have been the basis for his scientific and popular writings, including 16 books, among them The Year of the Gorilla, The Last Panda, and Tibet's Hidden Wilderness. He won a National Book Award in 1973 for The Serengeti Lion: A Study of Predator-Prey Relations.
