Gorongosa Park: Rebirth Of Paradise
Gorongosa Park: Rebirth Of Paradise 6 x 60'
Experience the incredible and inspiring rebirth of an African wilderness through the eyes of an Emmy-winning wildlife cameraman. American-born, African-raised Bob Poole embarks on an amazing adventure: spending two years living in Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique, Southern Africa, joining scientists and conservationists in the battle to re-wild this once-legendary national park. The fabric of life across this million-acre paradise was shredded during a long civil war. Now, an international team of scientists and conservationists has assembled to repair it. It’s one of the most ambitious wilderness restoration projects ever attempted.

This is no ordinary filming assignment for Poole. Instead of just staying behind the lens filming the action, he gets roped in and becomes a core part of it. He helps scientists dart and track the park’s elusive lions, decode the behavior of the park’s angry elephants, wrestle and study massive crocs, and help truck in herds of animals to replace the ones that were lost during the civil war.

Having grown up in Kenya, but now living in Idaho, Poole was keen to return to the Africa of his idyllic childhood. And this assignment fulfills his life-long dream of working in an African national park - combining his passion for conservation with his lifelong career filming the world’s beautiful but vulnerable wild animals.

In addition to giving us stunning images of Africa’s iconic wildlife, large and small, hoofed and winged, Poole takes us by the scruff of the neck into one of the most exciting conservation stories happening in the world today.
