In my work as a freelance journalist, author, National Geographic Explorer, and Global Fellow at the Wilson Center, I research and write on wildlife, ecosystems and the many threats they face, with a focus on wildlife trafficking, as well as conservation efforts to save them. I also write on environmental topics including pollution, energy, climate change and environmental health issues.
