Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 - 3:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with GEORGE B. SCHALLER. He has spent more than half a century studying wildlife in over twenty countries. He has helped protect some of the planets most endangered and iconic animals including the mountain gorillas, tigers, giant pandas, jaguars and the snow leopard. Tonight George Schaller talks about his new book TIBET WILD: A NATURALIST’S JOURNEYS ON THE ROOF OF THE WORLD. This book chronicles Schaller’s three decades long research on the remote Tibetan Plateau, “a place nowhere intimate”, studying wild yak, chiru, argali and of course the snow leopard.
