About this book

The three main hubs of aquarium trade devastation are Indonesia, the Philippines, and Hawaii. Each has its own sad story of political corruption and theft of natural resources to benefit a greedy, ruthless few. Yet, despite facing a litany of challenges, each hub shows faint hope for progress: with Komodo National Park in Indonesia, a few bright lights in the development of Philippine reef management, and an anti-aquarium campaign taking hold in Hawaii. A beautiful coffee table photo book is one thing, the publisher is marketing Dragon Walk as "a political grenade, willing to name culprits, political assassins, and nitwits". Dragon Walk is far more vital; a no-holds-barred grapple with evil and reef devastation that shines a light where others fear to tread.

Media reviews

"Dragon Walk goes to incredible places with skill and artistry in nature's most spectacular environment. 200 million people rely on coral reefs for sustenance as wholesale plunder impacts every human. Robert Wintner's book is a beautiful chronicle showing how political motivation might overcome destructive behavior. With oceans in need, political change must factor the Dragon Walk."
– Dr. Gerry Goeden, director of a Langkawi, Malaysia, reef nursery rehabbing tsunami-damaged reefs

"I've known of Robert Wintner since I bought Snorkel Bob gear twenty years ago, but only recently I learned of his alter ego of gifted writer and photographer with a fierce determination to protect, preserve, and educate on marine life and habitat. Dragon Walk is stunning in beauty and sobering in its message. Wintner is one of the most important voices for marine protection."
– Dr. Jonathan Balcombe, director for animal sentience at the Humane Society Institute for Science & Policy and the author of What a Fish Knows
