Seattle Area Screening and Discussion of the National Geographic Film "Africa's Lost Eden"

30 March 2011

Join the World Affairs Council for an exclusive screening and discussion of the National Geographic Channel film "Africa's Lost Eden." This documentary takes viewers on a journey to Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique - a place once called "where Noah left his ark" before 15 years of civil war nearly destroyed the ecosystem and wiped out the animal population. The film follows the efforts to restore the park's once-thriving wildlife and develop an eco-tourism industry in the communities surrounding the park. Funded by a unique public/private partnership between the U.S. based Carr Foundation and the Government of Mozambique, National Geographic calls the work to bring this African oasis back to its former glory, "perhaps the most ambitious restoration effort ever attempted."

Wildland Adventures is proud to partner with the World Affairs Council for this event. In support of Gorongosa's restoration project, we recently launched a new adventure exploring the park's ecologically diverse and dramatic landscape.
