Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- In 1976, a hotshot big-game trapper in East Africa landed an unlikely assignment. A mutual acquaintance told him Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos wanted to transform a cyclone-lashed island in his country into the Serengeti of the South China Sea. Although the island's imported gazelles, impala, topi and waterbuck died out, the number of giraffes, zebras and eland actually increased. Their future, however, remains uncertain. Bill Mellor reports. His story is featured in the Holiday 2013 issue of Bloomberg Pursuits magazine. (Source: Bloomberg)
