A story by photographer Brent Stirton and me on the global ivory trade, BLOOD IVORY:  Ivory Worship, is up on National Geographic.com.

Check out the new bryanchristy.com website.  I will continue to post here on issues related to The Lizard King book, but the new site is where I’ll call home, including my new Bryan Christy blog.

I have a post up on NationalGeographic.com regarding Anson Wong’s release.    And here is an interview in the Malay Mail.

Reaction to Wong Release

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

 

I confess, my initial reaction to Anson Wong’s release yesterday was that of a lawyer:  the court’s decision to reduce Wong’s sentence was probably reasonable given the facts as presented.

Here is excellent and insightful commentary from Malaysia on the implications of Anson Wong’s release from Dr. Bill Schaedla of TRAFFIC SE Asia who correctly points out that there is more to the story than simply what reached the appellate court… 

The investigation and prosecution of this case also lends further support for Malaysia’s efforts to create a Green Court.
