60 Minutes, African Safari's and Economic Development in Gorongosa National Park of Mozambique

It might not be a case study in Business as Mission, but it was nonetheless fascinating to watch Scott Pelley interview Greg Carr, the driving force behind the revitalization of the national wildlife park and the local economy.

For those of you that are not familiar with Gorongosa, it is a national wildlife park in Mozambique. You can click on there official site here (http://www.gorongosa.net/en/news-event/071508_60Minutes/60-minutes-films-in-gorongosa).
I wasn't able to fact check all the details, but it was encouraging was to hear Greg share about his openhandedness about the project and the desire for the local community to really take ownership and use it as a chance to create a brighter future.
