A Special Holiday Message from Dr. Jane Goodall

“Now is the season of 'good cheer' when people step back, take a few breaths, and spend time with family and friends.  I have at last arrived back at home in Bournemouth to be with my sister Judy, her daughter Pip, and her grandchildren, 14-year-old Alex and 13-year-old Nickolai. And, of course, the three dogs:  Charlie, Calie Grace and Henry Bean. We will then be joined by my granddaughter Angel with two friends from Tanzania, and Judy's other daughter, Emma, with her two dogs!
