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. If you would like to learn more about the conservation organizations that George Schaller talks about in the interview see: PANTHERA at http://www.panthera.org who work to conserve the large cats throughout the world and the WILDLIFE CONSERVATION SOCIETY at: http://www.wcs.org.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
