Rachel Nuwer

Rachel Nuwer is a freelance journalist who writes about science, travel, food, and adventure. She lives in Brooklyn but hails from the deep south of Mississippi, where a childhood spent exploring beaches and bayous kicked off her lifelong love for nature. Her story subjects range from fairy circles to bodies on Mount Everest, and her work regularly appears in National Geographic, the New York Times, BBC, and more.

Her book about the illegal wildlife trade will be published in 2018 by Da Capo Press.
