Description
ANIMAL DUNKIRK
Eric Roberts & Ronald Legge

Animal Dunkirk is the story of the greatest animal rescue since the Ark. The building of the Kariba dam across the waters of the River Zambesi caused the mightiest flood since biblical times to spread inexorably across forest, plain and jungle. And before the rising waters a host of God's creatures from insect to elephant retreated in bewildered confusion.

The higher areas of ground quickly formed islands, gradual1y becoming smaller and smal1er as the water rose. The entrapped animals had either to swim to mainland-as did most of the elephants and big cats-or to remain imprisoned, awaiting death from starvation or by drowning. Such, at least, would have been their fate but for the untiring efforts of the game-rangers assisted by a handful of volunteers.

Moving from island to island the rescuers went about their work, loading their boats with living cargoes of buck, baboons, snakes, and wart-hogs made frantic and doubly dangerous by terror of the rising tide. The bigger animals, too big to man-handJe, they drove into the water, goading and escorting them to the safety of the distam shore.

This is an epic story of nature running amok in the face of a man-made phenomenon; of birds making one nest after another,each higher than the last, in the vain hope of rearing their young before the waters engulfed them: of insects climbing to the top-most branches of the trees where they clustered so thick that fish swimming a few inches below them had only to nudge a twig for a cloud of their natural prey to drop helplessly into the water; and of a rhinoceros., his customary evil temper provoked beyond endurance, hurling his ton-and-a-half weight at the boat which had come to his deliverance. it is a story of heroism in which moments of acute danger were the only relief from the perpetual discomforts endured by white man and black.

Comes with a copy of our DVD Operation Noah - the animal rescue film - a $29.95 value .
