In Poached, Rachel Love Nuwer tackles the dynamics of illegal wildlife trafficking; this enormous, murky, and destructive trade. She tracks down wildlife sales and interviews hunters, traders, wildlife breeders, end-users, and conservationists of various stripes. Despite some shortcomings, Poached is a thoughtful portrayal of the complex illegal wildlife trade, avoiding the simplifications that pervade many treatments of the subject.
