Event Date: 
September 25, 2018

You're invited to New York University and online to explore the murky global trade in endangered wildlife — the poachers, the traders, the customers — and the challenges for science journalists on the battle lines of conservation.

We'll be joined by award-winning science journalist Rachel Nuwer, author of a new book, "Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking" and leading conservationist Timothy Tear, executive director of the Wildlife Conservation Society's Africa Program.

Join us in person at NYU on the 7th Floor of 20 Cooper Square or online at http://journalism.nyu.edu/kc Online participants can tweet questions using the #KavliConvo hashtag.

The Kavli Foundation and the NYU Science, Health, and Environmental Reporting Program sponsor the speaker series. It's moderated by Robert Lee Hotz, science writer for The Wall Street Journal and Distinguished Writer in Residence at the NYU Carter Journalism Institute.
