So Jane Goodall, noted primatologist, is turning 80 this Thursday, April 3rd. As someone who has studied chimpanzees, their habitat and environment, and been a beacon of conservationism for 50+ years, she's truly a remarkable woman. She deserves 80,000 birthday wishes this 80th birthday!!!
Happy birthday, Ms. Goodall! Thanks for all you have done and continue to do.
