BOOK: Rewilding Africa (Jonathan Ball) by Grant Fowlds and Graham Spence

From the bestselling authors of Saving the Last Rhinos, conservationist Grant Fowlds and journalist Graham Spence, comes a vivid account of environmental conservation and the ongoing efforts to conserve and restore Africa's iconic wildlife and its wildernesses on a war-ravaged continent.
