The king's new coat not just a fable

Wong Howman
Tuesday, 16 Mar 1999
Sports House
Howman gave a fascinating update on his Society's work, looking particularly at the poaching of the Tibetan antelope for production of the shahtoosh shawl. How Man first looked at the history of exploration in Tibet, then focused on the geography of the plateau before talking about what is known of the Tibetan antelope and the potential solutions to the poaching problem.
