Tony Fitzjohn – Born Wild

Born Wild’ is a story of passion, adventure and skullduggery on the frontline of African conservation. Following Tony Fitzjohns journey from London bad boy to African wildlife warrior, the heart of the story is a series of love affairs with the worlds most beautiful and endangered creatures – affairs that so often end in pain. For to succeed in re-introducing a lion or leopard to the wild is to be deprived of their companionship. Tony tells of his 20 years in Kenya with George Adamson of ‘Born Free’ fame – a time of discovery, isolation and frequent danger living far from civilisation. And when he was prevented from re-introducing any more animals into the wild and made unwelcome in the country he loved, Tony had to start anew in Tanzania.

An amazing story, very well read. I’d highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in conservation and what people can achieve in the face of almost insurmountable odds. Also very sobering, we need to do more to help preserve what we all take for granted.
