ARLINGTON, VA; Aug. 10, 2015 – Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife restoration stories, living proof that nature can recover from near collapse, so long as humans protect it and help it to heal. In GORONGOSA PARK: REBIRTH OF PARADISE, airing Tuesdays, September 22 to October 6, 8:00 -10:00 p.m. ET on PBS, viewers will join Emmy-winning filmmaker Bob Poole on an incredible adventure exploring Gorongosa, as “rewilding” efforts are made to restore populations of magnificent creatures after a civil war nearly destroyed the park.
