Yet thanks to some inspiring teachers and the squawk of a little green heron that awakened him to natures fundamental wonders, Dinerstein would ultimately become a leading conservation biologist, traveling to these and other remote corners of the world to protect creatures ranging from the striking snow leopard to the homely wrinkle-faced bat.Tigerland and Other Unintended Destinations takes readers on Dinersteins unlikely journey to conservations frontiers, from early research in Nepal to recent expeditions as head of Conservation Science at the World Wildlife Fund.

We are there as the author renews his resolve after being swept downstream on an elephants back, tracks snow leopards in the mountains of Kashmir with a remarkable housewife turned zoologist, and finds unexpected grit in a Manhattanite donor he guides into the wildest reaches of the Orinoco River. At every turn, we meet professed and unprofessed ecologists who shareDinersteins mission, a cast of free-spirited characters uncommonly committed to-and remarkably successful at-preserving slices of the worlds natural heritage.A simple sense of responsibility, one feels, shines through all of Dinersteins experiences: not just to marvel at what we see, but to join in efforts sustain the planets exquisite design.

Tigerlands message is clear: individuals make all the difference- if we combine science, advocacy, and passion, ambitious visions for conservation can become reality-even against overwhelming odds.
