Babylon's Ark: The Incredible Wartime Rescue of the Baghdad Zoo

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Graham Spence, Lawrence Anthony

Narrated By: Simon Vance

Date: January 2015

Duration: 8 hours 6 minutes

Summary:

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.

Genres:

  • Kathy L.

    Like his other books, excellent story and great narration

  • Nicole T.

    Like all Lawrence Anthony books it is superb, with so many angles and yet a difficult but singular mission (which of course becomes far more complex due to the unknown elements of the war and animal conditions).
