That name sounds so familiar, but yet I can't remember exactly why. As soon as you tell me, I'm going to kick myself, but I still want to know.

I am sooooo jealous!! I'm in such awe of Jane Gooddall...two Christmases ago my mom bought me her book (A Reason for Hope, I think it's called) and I couldn't put it down. She is so amazing!!<br><br><br><br>
Skylark--Jane Gooddall's done lots and lots and lots of work with chimps...lived in Africa for years...raised her kids there...please don't kick yourself too hard.

oh yeah! i got to go! and it was awsome! just being there in the same room with her was motivating and just surreal. she's one cool woman.<br><br><br><br>
she talked about an hour and a half..how she got started with everything, some specific really heartwarmning stories about some of the chimps and their behaviors, etc. talked about animal testing, environmental stuff, her group, 'roots and shoots,' her book (reason for hope), and wow...she's a good speaker. defintiey had my full attention the whole time.<br><br><br><br>
there was a good crowd. mainly college kids from a nearby private school. i'd say like 1000 people?? maybe. i can't estimate that number though. maybe less.<br><br><br><br>
very cool experience!
