Join world renowned conservationist Eli Weiss as she hosts Julian Rademeyer

Join world renowned conservationist Eli Weiss as she hosts Julian Rademeyer, author of “Killing For Profit” for a riveting discussion about the illegal trafficking of rhino horns and wildlife.
Join us Monday morning April 15, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. PST 9:00 MTN with special guest, investigative journalist Julian Rademeyer as we discuss his book Killing For Profit, which reads like an international thriller, but is a terrifying true story of greed, corruption, and ruthless criminal enterprise centered around the illegal trafficking of rhino horn and wildlife.

This book is a compelling, meticulous and revelatory account of one the world’s most secretive trades aiding in the decimation of one of our world’s unique endangered species, the Rhino.

Since publication, Mr. Rademeyer attended the CITES 2013 in Bangkok, reporting first-hand the human folly and convoluted international conservation policies, politics, players and loopholes which undermine the all efforts to save the rhino from extinction.
Julian Rademeyer is an award winning investigative journalist. He’s written and worked for many of South Africa’s major newspapers including City Press, Beeld, The Sunday Times, Pretoria News, and The Herald. In a career spanning nearly two decades, reporting from troubled areas including Somalia, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, Belarus, Egypt and Lebanon, he resigned from his position as chief reporter for Media24 Investigations (S.Africa), to spend two years researching and writing “Killing for Profit.”
In 2005 he won the Vodacom Journalist of the Year award for print news and a recipient of the 2009 Mondi Shanduka Newspaper Award for hard news. He has twice been a finalist for the Taco Kuiper Award, South Africa’s leading investigative journalism prize. His work has also been published Troublemakers: The Best of South Africa’s Investigative Journalism.
