This is why I love living in Vermont. We all enjoy eating local produce and were devastated after hearing of the tragedy that struck one of our favorite producers — Pete’s Greens.  On Wednesday morning, Pete’s barn burned down to the ground. It was a complete loss. Localvores throughout the state wanted to do something and put together an auction.

You can bid on signed copy of my book “ANIMAL INVESTIGATORS,” a “CSI for wildlife” that follows three true cases of wildlife crime. It’s been featured on ABC’s Nightline, NPR’s Science Friday & VPR’s Vermont Edition. Endorsed by Jane Goodall. Its underlying message is the importance of demand in spurring illegal wildlife trade & the impact of our own consumptive choices.
