The Wildlife Detectives: How Forensic Scientists Fight Crimes Against Nature

By Donna M. Jackson | Photographs by Bob Rozinski & Wendy Shattil

Slaughtering elephants for their ivory; shooting bears for their gall bladders; capturing sea turtles for soup. In the name of vanity, fashion, and greed, man stalks and kills wild animals—and gets away with it, even when it is clearly against the law. But now scientists have a way to catch and convict poachers. In a laboratory in Ashland, Oregon, they analyze clues to link suspects to crimes.
