From Booklist:

This volume from the Animal 911 series presents the complex and often gruesome topic of poaching in an accessible manner for elementary-school readers. Starting with the basic question, “What is poaching?” Shea proceeds to explain why people poach and engage in the illegal trade of animal parts. She puts the issue in the context of motivating factors, specifically economic issues and long-standing cultural traditions, which keep the practice alive despite the widely understood implications. While the threat to animals in Africa and Asia gets plenty of coverage, Shea points out that poaching is also a domestic problem, highlighting the plight of wolves that have found their habitats bumping up against human settlements. Color photographs abound, focusing on live animals rather than mutilated carcasses, as if emphasizing what we have to lose if species go extinct. A glossary, index, and list of further sources round off this solid book for young researchers. Grades 3-6. --Kara Dean
