George Schaller is a senior conservationist at the Wildlife Conservation Society in the Bronx, New York. He is a legendary zoologist, naturalist, conservationist, and best-selling author, who is recognized as the world's pre-eminent field biologist, studying wildlife throughout Africa, Asia and South America. Schaller has spent years in the most remote and forbidding places on earth studying the natural history of endangered animals fighting for their survival. He has encountered tigers in the wilds of India, mountain gorillas and lions in Africa, jaguars in the swamps of Brazil, and snow leopards in the Himalayas. His splendid writings are presented with style and stunning imagery, including "The Serengeti Lion" (which received the National Book Award) and "The Mountain Gorilla" (the first book that conveyed to the general public the profound intelligence and gentleness of gorillas in the wild). Schaller has helped establish more than 20 parks or animal reserves around the world, including Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Chang Tang Nature Reserve. He is the recipient of the National Geographic Society's Lifetime Achievement Award and the World Wildlife Fund's Gold Medal.
