Update: Guest Alan Rabinowitz had to reschedule today. The online discussion will go on and I'll note when this show is set to air.
hosts an interesting discussion today at 10 a.m. CT:
Fight for the big cats
A renowned animal conservationist explains why dictators are more committed to saving endangered species than are leaders from democratic societies.
Guest Alan Rabinowitz: President and CEO of Panthera, and founder of the Hukawng Valley Tiger Reserve in northern Burma. His latest book is "Life in the Valley of Death: The Fight to Save Tigers in a Land of Guns, Gold, and Greed."
Perhaps you could also argue that a dictator could also more easily disregard animal and natural resource conservation.
Listen to the show at 10 a.m. CT and join the online discussion to post your comments.
