Gorongosa Park, Rebirth of Paradise

If you have been lucky enough to catch the fascinating PBS series, Gorongosa Park, Rebirth of Paradise, this week you met our photographer and expert entomologist Piotr Naskrecki. This region in Mozambique has been ravaged by a civil war that ended in 1992. The impact upon the people, wildlife and habitat was immense but there is good news. In 2008 a cooperative restoration project between the country's government and a conservation group has contributed to the park's rapid recovery. Piotr has been photographing the park's inhabitants for years as part of the conservation team. His photography was published in A Window on Eternity: A Biologist's Walk Through Gorongosa National Park written by E.O.Wilson who is also involved in this PBS series which on PBS on September 22nd. You can now stream it at http://www.pbs.org/gorongosa/home/.
