Roar gives the reader insight into how one of the world's most famous non-profits maintains quality, guest attendance, employee engagement, and adherence to their mission and vision through good times bad, which are both inevitable in a 100-year existence. Through stories of their own resilience as well as outside examples, we learn how to improve and achieve our own goals in a lasting manner. Roar provides inspiration by showing that a company whose vision is to end extinction can not only stay afloat but actually exceed expectations year after year and continue their admirable work in wildlife conservation around the world.
