For the past decade he has specialized in threatened ecosystems and species in countries like Indonesia, Brazil, India and Peru. In the Amazon, Rosolie has described new ecosystems and launched the first ever study of anacondas in lowland rainforest. He has also spent extensive time traveling with poachers documenting the illegal trade in endangered species. Rosolie’s memoir on Amazonian wildlife and exploration, Mother of God, was hailed as “gripping” by Jane Goodall, and the Wall Street Journal applauded Rosolie’s environmental call-to-arms for its "rare immediacy and depth." In 2013 Rosolie spoke at the United Nations global Forum on Forests while accepting an award for his Amazonian wildlife short film An Unseen World.
