Dr. Jane and the Necklace

Wednesday, February 3, 2010 - 4:33pm

As Jane travels the world - and airport after airport - she meets many people along the way. Often the interaction starts when someone whispers "is that really Jane Goodall?" and Jane responds with a cheerful "Hello! How are you?"

On a recent stop at the Los Angeles International Airport, Jane met a new friend named Michael Kane, who happened to be on the same flight. After speaking about their mutual interest in Native American culture, Michael removed a beautiful red and turquoise stone necklace he had been wearing and insisted Jane accept his gift of friendship. Jane of course loved the necklace and has been wearing it at many high-profile events. Take a look below!

When Jane met famous photographer Annie Leibovitz in Long Beach, California she wore the necklace!
