Being Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall has studied chimpanzees in Africa since 1960. She arrived in Tanganyika with no training but a lot of enthusiasm for the work ahead. Fifty years later, she is still working for the benefit of the chimpanzees she loves. National Geographic has an extensive retrospective of her life and work in the new issue, with plenty of photographs as well. Link -Thanks, Marilyn Terrell!

In addition, NatGeo has digitized and archived all the articles they've done on Jane Goodall and her work since 1960. Link

National Geographic was criticised for these articles because of the 'cheesecake' factor. I'm glad that Ms. Goodall has proved herself a true scientist.

She is darn cute, though.

Oh yeah! I recall that when the comic was first published, someone from the Institute raised a real ruckus because he considered it slander or something. Then Goodall herself found out about it and assured everyone that she was flattered and loved the joke.
