Noted author Mike Arnold, a Distinguished Research Professor of Genetics at the University of Georgia, will be signing 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 in the Zambeze Delta Safari Booth #1400 with legendary African professional hunter and conservationist Mark Haldane on the following dates and times: Wednesday, Feb. 22nd, from 1:00 pm-4:00 pm; Thursday and Friday, Feb. 23rd and 24th 9:00 am-11:00 am, and 2:00pm-5:00 pm; and Saturday, Feb. 25th from 9:00 am-noon.
Arnold’s highly acclaimed Bringing Back the Lions details how a small group of professional hunters, including Haldane, spearheaded a near-30-year effort to return a once-incredible wildlife paradise from a decimated and near-barren landscape to one of the world’s premier wildlands – the area of Mozambique known as Coutada 11. Coutada 11 is an official concession covering 2000 square kilometers (approximately 772 square miles) of some of the most diverse habitat and animal species in Africa. This area is one of the few remaining in Africa where one can still do a classical African Safari.
A life-long hunter who has traveled the globe, Arnold has published hundreds of research articles and four books on a variety of topics, including conservation biology. Publications such as Science Magazine, The New York Times, and National Public Radio continue calling 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 be able to present a copy of his book to the Honorable Carlos dos Santos, Mozambique Ambassador to the United States.
