BABYLON'S ARK The Incredible Wartime Rescue of the Baghdad Zoo

by | Read by Simon Vance

History • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Listeners will be impressed by Anthony's unwavering commitment to the animals of the world, especially those trapped in areas plagued by the violence of humans. The renowned South African conservationist traveled to the Baghdad Zoo during the war in Iraq to try to nurse the animals back to health and transport them to safety, despite the threats of combat-related danger and widespread looting. Simon Vance's capable narration communicates the great degree of risk and uncertainty of Anthony's mission in a war zone where tensions were running high. Vance's measured tempo and varied tone reflect the drama of the complex situation facing this dedicated conservationist, zoo employees, and U.S. soldiers committed to helping the animals.
