Well quit with all the dumb monkeying around and going bananas jokes and get straight to it: Jane Goodall dedicated a remarkable 45 years of her life to the research of chimpanzee behavior and family life.
What she accomplished was unprecedented in her field: Deciphering the primate cognitive process, Goodall trailed and developed intimate relationships with countless chimpanzees, including ones she named David Greybeard, Humphrey, Mr. McGregor, Frodo and others.
Anaheims Muzeo is now hosting Discovering Chimpanzees: The Remarkable World of Jane Goodall, a hands-on, family-friendly exhibit that takes you straight to the African forest. Explore chimpanzees treetop nests, record your own chimp sounds, ogle a family tree and time line of Goodalls many chimpanzee friends, and much more.
The best part? The exhibit promises to ignite a spark of activism in a whole new generation, as the chimps are now on the list of endangered animals.
