When the Iraq war began, conservationist Lawrence Anthony could think of only one thing: the fate of the Baghdad Zoo, caught in the crossfire at the heart of the city. Once Anthony entered Iraq, he discovered that hostilities and uncontrolled looting had devastated the zoo and its animals.
Working with members of the zoo staff and a few compassionate U.S. soldiers, Anthony defended the zoo, bartered for food on war-torn streets, and scoured bombed palaces for desperately needed supplies. Babylon's Ark chronicles Anthony's hair-raising efforts to save a pride of Saddam's lions, close a deplorable black-market zoo, run ostriches through shoot-to-kill checkpoints, and rescue the dictator's personal herd of Thoroughbred Arabian horses.

From the Inside Flap:

Into the middle of a raging war, and against enormous odds, wades a brave conservationist to save the stranded, magnificent animals of the Baghdad Zoo

“Terrific tale about how Iraqis, a South African conservationist and American soldiers saved the animals of the Baghdad Zoo. A wartime story with a joyful ending.”--Kirkus Reviews (Starred review)

“The author takes no position on the invasion. His goal is for his mission, so dramatically recounted with journalist Spence’s help, to set an example of conservation and respect for animal life.”--Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Lawrence Anthony (1950-2012) was an international conservationist, explorer, adventurer, and the long-standing head of conservation at the Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, South Africa.
