Each year along the shores of the Platte River, near Kearney, Nebraska, a phenomenal natural event takes place—the spring migration of the whooping and sandhill cranes. Though the great migrations of the buffalo and passenger pigeon have become obsolete, there still exists, unknown to many, an opportunity to witness an equally spectacular occurrence in the crane migration.
Earlier in the month, Jane received the Lifetime Achievement award at this year's Observer Ethical Awards. At the London ceremony, the judges said Jane merited the honor because of her "promotion of the planet" and her "extraordinary contribution to the development of our understanding of the natural world, particularly broadening our knowledge of the habits of chimpanzees."
