Speaking of zoos in Palestine…

This book sounds awesome.

The Zoo on the Road to Nablus
From Publishers Weekly

British journalist Thomas recounts a year and a half in the life of the zoo, following zoo veterinarian Dr. Sami Khader’s dogged—often futile—attempts to transform a neglected menagerie into an institution of international caliber.
