One extraordinary change at Gombe - I am sitting in the house on the beach where Grub grew up waiting to send a skyped message to the UK in commemoration of the 50th anniversary. When I arrived there was no faxing, no emailing - certainly no Skyping! Only telegrams if you wanted to communicate fast - and from here they took at least several days to a week. Letters took two to three weeks to get the UK, even by airmail.
Event Time: 8 PM EDT
Dr. Goodall will give a special keynote speech at Western Connecticut State University as part of the Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots North America Training Summit held on campus. The lecture is free and open to the general public, but tickets are required.
Today, July 14, 2010, marks the 50th anniversary of the day that Jane first stepped onto the shores of Lake Tanganyika to begin her pioneering chimpanzee research in what is now Gombe National Park. To celebrate this tremendous milestone, Jane is spending the month of July in Africa including time in Gombe, the site of her groundbreaking field study. Jane will enjoy today reflecting and celebrating with local members of Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots.
