9781605984490: The Last Great Ape: A Journey Through Africa and a Fight for the Heart of the Continent

An epic journey through Africa by a man who fell in love with a magical and disappearing world and made it his life’s work to protect it.  Winner of the Condé Nast Environmental Award

Staging heart-pounding, espionage-style raids, Ofir Drori and his organization, The Last Great Ape (LAGA), have put countless poachers and traffickers of endangered species behind bars, and they have fought back against a Kafkaesque culture of corruption. Before Ofir arrived in Cameroon, no one had ever even tried.The book reveals the intense beauty and strife that exist side by side in Africa, and Ofir makes the case that activism and dedication to a cause are still relevant in a cynical modern world. This dramatic story is one of courage and hope and, most importantly, a search for meaning. 64 color photographs

About the Author:

Ofir Drori is an Israeli activist based in Central Africa.  A former army officer, educator, journalist, photographer, and adventurer, he has spent the past decades in two dozen different African countries.  He founded LAGA in 2003 and leads various efforts against corruption for conservation, democracy, and the rule of law.

David McDannald is an American writer, who lives on a ranch in the West Texas mountains.  He splits his time between caring for the cattle herd and traveling in Africa and South America.  He has published fiction and nonfiction in various magazines and journals.  He and Ofir met in Kenya in 2000 and they became best friends.

Review:

“Skillful storytelling. Readers who share Drori’s affection for Africa or his passionate animal activism will not be disappointed.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Ofir Drori is a man on a mission. LAGA has made a difference and shows no sign of stopping.”
- BBC News

“Intense and uncompromising. LAGA’s success has galvanized groups around the world. Ivory dealers now warn one another of ‘this dangerous man in black.'”
- Conservation Magazine
