In the farming town of Qalqilya, close to the Israeli border, stands the last Palestinian zoo. Within walls pockmarked by gunshots are its remaining occupants: hyenas, monkeys, and hippos who have somehow made it through. The Zoo on the Road to Nablus, like the animal refuge it honors, is a monument to lives lived against the odds and the indomitable human (and animal) spirit.
