But after the war in Iraq began in 2003, the city faced widespread destruction.When U. S. Army Captain William Sumner was asked to check out the state of the zoo, he found that it, too, was devastated. Hundreds of animals were missing, and the few remaining were in desperate need of care. And so Captain Sumner accepted a new mission. Together with local citizens and an international team of zoologists, veterinarians, conservationists, and dedicated animal lovers, Captain Sumner worked tirelessly to save the neglected—but tenacious—animals of Baghdad.Saving the Baghdad Zoo tells the poignant stories of these remarkable animals.

Meet the abandoned lions who roamed an empty palace with no food or drink- the camel, Lumpy, who survived transport through sniper fire- the tigers, Riley and Hope, who traveled 7,000 miles from home- and many more.The Baghdad Zoo, open once again to the people of Iraq, has become an oasis of hope and safety in a city where both are precious gifts.
