World Chimpanzee Day
Today is the second annual World Chimpanzee Day! We celebrate on July 14 because it was the first day Jane Goodall began her groundbreaking work studying chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. Her findings revealed familiar traits in our closest animal relatives.
AAVS was honored to have Jane Goodall appear on the cover of our AV Magazine and feature her writing inside this issue that focuses on chimpanzees. She introduces us to the world of chimpanzees and reflects on her observations and interactions with the chimps she grew to love. We could think of no better way to celebrate World Chimpanzee Day, than to share this insightful article with you.
