Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

As one of the world’s leading field biologists, author George Schaller has spent much of his life traversing wild and isolated places in his quest to understand and conserve threatened species. Tibet Wild is Schaller’s account of three decades of exploration in the most remote stretches of Tibet. As changes in the region accelerated over the years, with more roads, homes, and grazing livestock, Schaller watched the clash between wildlife and people become more common—and more destructive. Thus what began as a purely scientific endeavor became a mission: to work with local communities, regional leaders, and national governments to protect the unique ecological richness and culture of the Tibetan Plateau.
