Noted author Mike Arnold, Distinguished Research Professor of Genetics at the University of Georgia, will sign copies of his groundbreaking new book, Bringing Back the Lions: International Hunters, Local Tribespeople, and the Miraculous Rescue of a Doomed Ecosystem in Mozambique, at Music City Center in Nashville, TN, February 22-25, 2023.
Arnold will appear at the Zambezi Delta Safari Booth #1400 with legendary African professional hunter and conservationist Mark Haldane on the following dates and times: Wednesday, February 22, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm; Thursday and Friday, February 23 and 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and on Saturday, February 25 from 9:00 am to noon.
Arnold’s highly acclaimed Bringing Back the Lions details how a small group of professional hunters, including Haldane, spearheaded a nearly 30-year effort to return a once-incredible wildlife haven from a decimated and nearly barren landscape to one of the best wilderness in the world. – the area of Mozambique known as Coutada 11. Coutada 11 is an official concession covering 2,000 square kilometers (approximately 772 square miles) of some of the most diverse habitats and animal species in Africa. This area is one of the few remaining in Africa where you can still do a classic African safari.
A lifelong hunter who has traveled the world, Arnold has published hundreds of research articles and four books on a variety of topics, including conservation biology. Publications like Science Magazine, The New York Times and National Public Radio continue to call Mike for interviews covering his research. Earlier this year, he attended the 20th annual meeting of the African Wildlife Consultative Forum in Maputo, Mozambique, where he was honored to present a copy of his book to the Honorable Carlos dos Santos, Ambassador of Mozambique to the United States.
