The Loss of a Conservation Hero

The world of conservation suffered a great loss on the 2nd of March 2012, when Lawrence Anthony passed away peacefully in his sleep. Known internationally for his compassionate intervention at the Baghdad Zoo during the coalition invasion of Iraq, and his subsequent books Babylon’s Ark and The Elephant Whisperer, his life was a true reflection of an extraordinary man who lived by the mantra that nothing is insurmountable. As founder of “The Earth Organization”, his initiatives will continue to make a massive impact in the world of conservation.

Anthony is an award winning conservationist, explorer, adventurer, author and founder of The Earth Organization. His new book 'The Last Rhinos' will be released at the end of March.

His sons say that their father was a remarkable man who lived his life to the fullest and never looked back on any choices he made.

He leaves behind his wife Francoise, his two sons, Dylan and Jason, and two grandsons, Ethan and Brogan.

He was truly one of my heroes and he will surely be missed by the whole EARTH. My deepest condolences to all his family and friends, including the wildlife he saved. May Mr. Anthony rest in peace, knowing his legacy lives on in the wildlife and in those of us he inspired.
