Today is a special day! It's Jane Goodall's birthday.
As Jane turns 78 years young, she is spending her birthday in one of her favorite places on Earth...other than Gombe National Park that is! She's watching the annual migration of the sandhill cranes in Nebraska's Plate River Valley. Of course, Jane is never one to take a day off like the rest of us and so she is also busily finalizing her latest book while in the middle of her spring 2012 North American speaking tour.
