Just finished reading the book "Winged Obsession" by Jessica Speart. If you have not read this book you should.
I had no idea that butterfly smuggling was such a big business. By big I mean $200 million a year.
The book revolves around US Federal Wildlife Special Agent Ed Newcomer and butterfly smuggler Yoshi Kojima. Not sure if these are there real names.
The case lasted for more than three years and Kojima ended up in jail for two years.
There is a lot to learn from reading this book.
If you like butterflies at all, ask for this book as a Christmas gift.
