Dragon Walk, The Book & The Movie


Click here and watch the trailer.

Three hubs of aquarium trade devastation are Indonesia, the Philippines and Hawaii. Each has its own sad story of political corruption and theft of natural resources to profit a greedy, ruthless few. Each shows faint hope for progress, with Komodo National Park in Indonesia, a few bright lights in Philippine reef management, and an anti-aquarium campaign in Hawaii that feels like a bare-knuck brawl with no time limit.

A beautiful coffee table photo book is one thing. Dragon Walk is another—a no-holds-barred grapple with evil and reef devastation. Dragon Walk shines a light where others fear to tread. Dragon Walk names culprits, political assassins and nitwits with less spinal fortitude than most invertebrates.

100% of proceeds from book sales accrue to the campaign to end aquarium collecting.

The Book
“Dragon Walk goes to incredible places with skill and artistry in Nature’s most spectacular environment. 200 million people rely on coral reefs for sustenance as wholesale plunder impacts every human. Robert Wintner’s book is a beautiful chronicle showing how political motivation might overcome destructive behavior. With oceans in need, political change must factor the Dragon Walk.”
—Dr. Gerry Goeden operates a coral nursery to rehab tsunami damaged reefs in Langkawi, Malaysia.

“I’ve known of Robert Wintner since I bought Snorkel Bob gear 20 years ago, but only recently I learned of his alter ego of gifted writer and photographer with a fierce determination to protect, preserve, and educate on marine life and habitat. Dragon Walk is stunning in beauty, and sobering in its message. Wintner is one of the most important voices for marine protection.”
—Dr. Jonathon Balcombe is the Director for Animal Sentience at the Humane society Institute for Science & Policy. He is the author of What a Fish Knows.
