      EVENT DETAILS
      Chinese Modern History & the Lust for Rare Wildlife Products

      Mary Ting will give a visual oriented historical, cultural and personal presentation that examines the complex issue of the Chinese market for endangered species products and the quest for power, status, and immortality. From elephant ivory to elephant skin, rhino horn, shark fin, pangolin scales, tiger and lion parts, sea cucumber and rosewood - the list of desired luxury items is long and growing as species dwindle and “new traditional” products appear. In order to get behind the how-and-why this came to be, it is necessary to look at history.

      Cost: $25 ($5 with a valid student ID)
