BABYLON'S ARK: THE INCREDIBLE WARTIME RESCUE OF THE BAGHDAD ZOO

By Lawrence Anthony

Synopsis

When the Iraq war began, conservationist Lawrence Anthony could only think of the fate of the Baghdad Zoo, caught in the war's crossfire. Anthony discovered that full-scale combat and uncontrolled looting had killed nearly all the animals of the zoo. But not all of them. Here he chronicles the zoo's transformation from bombed-out rubble to peaceful park in an uplifting story of both sides working together for the sake of innocent animals.
