Jun 23, 2019
Out June 21 in the The New York Times my collaboration with NYT journalist Ben C. Solomon deep in the forests of eastern Thailand. We went on patrol with a group of Thai forest rangers who had just completed a training course in Ta Praya National Park.

The rangers work tirelessly in protecting, amongst other things, the remaining rosewood trees. We all owe these brave rangers a huge debt of gratitude, who undertake really hard and dangerous work to keep Thailand's forests from being even more depleted.

    â€˜These Forests Are the Lungs of the Country’: Thai Rangers Guard Precious Rosewood
