Synopsis

Mr Regenstein and Studs discuss the book, "The Politics of Extinction". The book blows the whistle on those who are currently engaged in killing these animals for "sport," fashion, and profit. They talk about various endangered species and what that distinction means and the public officials with the power- and the responsibility - to protect wildlife, but who instead allow the destruction to continue.
