The latest book in the Hope & Inspiration Series with the San Diego Zoo, Saving Moka, by Georgeanne Irvine, tells the tale of a tiger cub who was confiscated from wildlife smugglers at the US/Mexico border. Some of you may remember hearing about this adorable cub on the news several years ago.
We are so fortunate to have such dedicated wildlife care specialists at the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park who save these endangered animals from wildlife traffickers. Moka faced many physical challenges and would not have survived without their expertise and care.
I am very fortunate to work so closely with the San Diego Zoo and serve as the editor for this award-winning series of books. I do not have the expertise to care for these animals directly, but it is my honor to be able to help tell their stories.
